6. Conclusion


1. Lahmeyer at a glance

Lahmeyer group: 1500 staff with sales of app. 200

MUSD in 2011

• International sales, mainly in MENA, South Asia and

Africa account for 87% of total sales

• One of the global leader in Hydropower

• App. 80% of sales related to the energy sector


2. Lahmeyer’s “green” experience

• Working on renewable energy since more than ten years

Ranked No. 5 in latest ENR report on International Design Firms for

wind power and solar energy

At present working on numerous renewable energy master plans in

Northern Africa

• We are involved in numerous large multipurpose dam projects

around the world which are

storing water as the basis for sustainable food production

producing clean “high value” energy

reducing risk of flooding

• We have more than 40 years of experience in building pump

storage plants, at present the only cost efficient method to

store electrical energy in large volumes


3. What do Lahmeyer’s project

manager report

• Our clients are looking for

Financial sustainability; investment decisions are purely based on

financial feasibility;

Except for Hydropower governments around the world need to trigger

investments into renewable energy by financial incentives (subsidies,

tax credits, etc.) or by forcing utilities to generate a certain amount of

renewable energy

Project solutions which are accepted not only by investors and

permitting authorities, but also by local communities (“social and

environmental feasibility”)

• In large dam projects we see a special phenomena:

NGO’s from western countries fight against new projects, arguing that

projects are not sustainable, whereas not only investors and authorities

support these projects, but also local communities and local NGO’s


4. What is the perception in Germany

• Large infrastructure projects face public opposition unheard of

in the past. Examples are:

Stuttgart railroad station

New runways at Frankfurt or Munich airport

1400 MW pump storage plant Atdorf in the black forest

High voltage transmission lines needed for the “Ehergiewende”

Offshore or onshore wind parks

• Opposition is more and more coming from senior citizens,

often belonging to the upper middle class (professionals)

• Permitting of large infrastructure is driven by getting social

and environmental acceptance, often at almost any cost


5. What are the owners of our

companies looking for
