Nexus PMG’s business lines and execution philosophy stems from a One Team Approach under a matrix structure. This leads to all team members having a role to play within each business line. This reorganization is structured to support the business operational focus on streamlining oversight and continued client focus. The execution principles of shared knowledge across business lines will continue to be fostered across the company. Our primary business lines are Nexus PMG, Nexus PDS, and Nexus OPI.
Nexus PMG is the point where project finance, development and operations connect. Our focus is providing world-class advisory services to infrastructure investors by delivering technical, operational, and financial diligence on projects that reduce carbon intensity and enhance resource efficiency. Our integrated business lines provide end-to-end services within each targeted sector including development, preliminary engineering, contract structuring, EPC, commissioning and startup, operational readiness, and process improvement.
Nexus PDS supports developers in all aspects of project development necessary to satisfy intense project finance and underwriting requirements including technical, financial and contractual. Our in-depth knowledge of project finance and market knowledge acquired through our advisory group is the fundamental basis for all facets of development support with a focus on site selection, financial modeling, fuel supply, offtakes, permitting, FEED studies and EPC contracts.
Nexus OPI provides operational-readiness and performance improvement, (OPI), services to ensure projects progress from mechanical completion to steady-state operations via a world-class operations platform. Our operations and reliability teams focus on the implementation of our own Operational Excellence Framework to ensure long-term asset productivity and reliability.
