Independent Engineering

Uncover risk and understand a project’s full potential to compete and perform.

Successful project finance requires sound technical, commercial, and regulatory advice targeted at minimizing risk. From pre-finance reviews through construction and into operations, Leidos delivers the objective information needed to thoroughly evaluate the inherent risks, potential upside, and full value of projects.

Leidos supports developers, owners, and financiers in their evaluation of technologies and projects for debt, equity investment, and acquisition or divestiture. Experience with a broad spectrum of technologies and all aspects of project development and operation means we have the capacity to examine virtually any asset, operating company, or portfolio of projects. With more than 30 years of involvement in independent power production, Leidos has a deep understanding of the technical, contract, environmental compliance, construction, and operations and maintenance issues that drive project success.
