Project finance provides off balance sheet financing through limited or non-recourse loans which are collateralized by a project’s assets, a pledge of shares in the Project Company, and future cash flows. Up to 80% of a project’s total cost can be financed over 10 – 20 years at attractive interest rates.
Project finance usually involves an extensive process of detailed feasibility study, lender due diligence, intense negotiations and complicated financial model and security documentation. Bluebird Finance and Projects’ familiarity with this process ensures that our clients have the expert advice and support needed at every stage.
This support begins with helping clients express and quantify their business concept in a project package suitable for potential development and commercial lenders. Our established relationships and experience with such agencies allow us to structure and present each project so as to receive the most favorable treatment possible.
During the due diligence stage, Bluebird Finance & Projects assists clients with all aspects of lender communications and management including negotiating financing terms that are flexible, competitive and cost effective, and that minimize recourse to sponsors.

In addition to our key role as a financial arranger, we assist our clients (the EPC contractors) with the content sourcing from various European countries to fulfill the specific ECA’s requirements while finding the most cost-effective ways for our clients.
This assistance in content sourcing proves itself, again and again, to be dramatic, as it saves our clients huge amounts of time and money.
The way to formulate the right content structure – which saves the EPC contractor huge amounts of money while keeping it acceptable by the ECA – is a unique skill, which requires experience of years, and unique knowledge. It also requires knowing very well in advance the specific emphasis and criteria of each and every ECA, as those requirements vary from ECA to ECA.
In order to do that, we have built during recent years a massive database of good partners – European contractors and suppliers – whom we can deploy to a specific deal, as a sub-contractor, on relatively very short notice. Each partner would fit a different project and a different need.
