    RENEWABLE ENERGY DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS DATABASE

    SOLAR ENERGY FACILITIES
    CLOUD DEDICATED COST DATABASE FOR COST ESTIMATING TEAMS

    CAF-CAPEX DATABASE is a structured and comprehensive knowledge base designed to Cost Estimating professionals, the estimators can choose from parametric equipment models to detailed unit-rate data for all typical project disciplines, which include other parameters like Installation Mhrs and weights.

    With the central database architecture of CAF-CORPORATION, client knowledge remains secure and available when they need it, and options for customized databases are available as per client request.

    The CAF-CAPEX DATABASE information has been previously benchmarked with other third parties Databases, for example, some well-known datasets such as Compass International, Richardson and Page & Nations. In that benchmarking process, CAF-CORPORATION has applied the International statistic standards to obtain trusted data based on regression analysis methodology which include the feature to be real time updated using an owned Cost Index Database (CAF-COST INDEX DATABASE).

    This section is a best practice guideline for solar power plants. It focuses primarily on ground mounted, fixed tilt PV projects and also covers solar tracking system technology. Intended to be a practical toolkit, the guide includes Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) technology and highlights aspects of the CSP project development process that differ from the PV equivalent. It also has guidelines on construction, operation and maintenance contract terms. SOLAR PV TECHNOLOGY: The technologies of solar PV power systems can be split into four main categories:

      • Off-grid domestic;
      • Off-grid non-domestic;
      • Grid-connected distributed; and
      • Grid-connected centralised.

    This information is focussed on grid-connected centralised applications. The main components of a PV power plant are PV modules, mounting (or tracking) systems, inverters, transformers and the grid connection. Solar PV modules are made up of PV cells, which are most commonly manufactured from silicon but other materials are available. Cells can be based on either wafers (manufactured by cutting wafers from a solid ingot block of material) or “thin film” deposition of material over low cost substrates

    We’re ready to transform the way you Estimate your Project.

    When we say all in one, we certainly strive that all the tools that a Cost Estimating Professional needs are integrated. The growth process of the Databases and Tools is done in accordance with the requirements of the users.
    You can find the databases, tools and techniques to Estimate your Project, or we can tailor it to suit your needs.
    These Databases were designed with the objective of providing information necessary to carry out cost estimates for Industrial Projects, based on generic cost curves for several types of equipment families, generated through benchmarking techniques and Multiple Regression Analysis.
    The comparative curves simulate Component Cost as a function of a capacity variable or combination of variables. The cost curves, man hours of installation and other information contained in this application can be used to develop the total cost of capital (CAPEX) of a process plant or any construction infrastructure.

    These databases are time & location adjustable online.

    At your disposal cost index and location factor tools, you can adjust them using “Caf-Cost-Index” and “Caf-Capex Location Factor” online, do not waste time waiting for an updated edition, you will always have the information up to date.
