Land and Easement Acquisition

Land and Easement Acquisition (LEA) and Environmental & Social Impact Identification and Management (ESIIM) are key interrelated elements in large-scale industrial and infrastructure projects.

LEA is the process by which the investor secures access rights to land to support the development of the project’s infrastructure. The entire process must be conducted as per national regulations and, if required, in compliance with the standards of the International Financial Institutions. It is critically important that LEA activities are planned and executed in accordance with measures to mitigate the Environmental & Social (E & S) risks and impacts.

The below list identifies the competencies and deliverables associated with LEA and takes into account the associated E & S requirements.


  • Scoping
  • Cost estimation
  • Risks assessment

Procurement, Supply Chain & Logistics Services

Complex capital projects require unique procurement and logistics solutions. EIM, together with its US based partner Greyforge Group, is able to provide consolidated procurement and logistics solutions for challenging global projects.

EIM, together with the Greyforge Group, has existing agreements in place with leading equipment and material suppliers allowing for cost effective, direct access to specialized products required during project development. In addition to providing cost savings, such arrangements minimize specialized material and equipment delays during project execution – a common source of project delays and associated cost overruns.

Concerning logistics and supply chain, EIM is able to offer full development and management of consolidated logistics solutions including warehousing, port development and optimized supply chain management services.

Project Management

At EIM, we understand that effective management of complex industrial projects goes far beyond the simple mantra of ‘on time and within budget’ so often repeated in industrial development.

Large capital projects are complex undertakings with each stakeholder bringing unique interests to the project. Successful projects account for the objectives of all stakeholders in a transparent and timely manner.

When professional project development specialists work with project sponsors, regulatory bodies, contractors & suppliers and local communities in such an open and transparent manner, the result is that projects are developed in a more cost effective and timely manner.

Project Finance

The core of every project is its business case. EIM has the skills and expertise to turn ideas into viable business plans accounting for all aspects of a project.

A key element of the business plan is the project financing. Depending on the needs of the client(s), a number of different financing methods can be applied. A common form of financing for major capital projects is Project Financing which is a lending mechanism relying on anticipated cash flows of the future project. Effectively managing the Project Finance process is complex and lengthy – requiring specific expertise that the EIM team can offer.

Additionally, EIM is able to rely on its extensive network to work with clients to identify, pursue and work with relevant lender groups to manage the financing process.

Technical Management

EIM’s technical backbone and passion for industrial development is one of our key differentiators. At EIM, we have the experience and focus to engage with our clients at the industrial development level.

EIM’s technical strengths are enhanced by our partnership with Renco. This partnership allows for extensive technical expertise in all aspects of project planning, execution and asset management. Most importantly, Renco is a group that shares EIM’s vision of intelligent and responsible development.
