About Us

The genco difference

Having completed dozens of projects internationally since 2007, including many many under a project recovery mandate, our co-founding director Justin Sollitt shares these key facets that are Genco Energy's core points of difference in the business of power projects and project recovery;

Genco are no-nonsense - the 'Red Adair' of power-gen is our reputation;
  • We bring to our clients the energy and drive of a results orientated owner-operator fixed term project team. We do not come as employees looking for a job.
  • We have an entrepreneurial drive and 'can do' attitude that is instilled in all our people.
  • We bring solutions to the project, we do not come as part of the problem, and our egos are left at home.
  • Projects require good governance, but we never let process become the core business.
  • We are international but not corporate. In today's world of institutionalised corporate speak our people only understand; schedule - cost - results - quality - reputation - compliance.

Project Recovery is comparable to a lead surgeon or deployment to war; 
  • Because when a project is distressed - nobody values inexperience, no matter how low the price or a willingness to learn.
  • Genco projects are successful because of old fashioned experience, know-how and tenacity.
  • Our people are used to deployment to remote and difficult projects often for months at a time.

Genco stakes is reputation on every project;

  • Because our reputation is only ever as good as our last project. 
  • Critically the open market does not provide testimonials for under performance.

Genco brings an equal balance of strong commercial and technical experience;

  • A very rare quality these days, as most people are biased towards either one or the other.
  • Genco are experienced across all facets of projects both technically and commercially.
  • Genco founding directors bring considerable commercial knowledge and experience across all facets of business / projects - from SME's to publicly listed companies and SOE's.

Technical qualifications are important, but practical experience is essential;
  • We value people's experience, initiative and attitude ahead of their qualifications.
  • We are strong in people management and adaptability, especially running a large project/construction teams up to 250 personnel.
  • We have strong international experience, especially in developing countries.
  • We are comfortable in operating from the boardroom to the site office, including with media and P/R.

Critically, Genco treats its client's money as if it's their own;

  • Genco has a strong commercial focus and capability that is essential to successful project delivery.
  • We are experienced in ‘hard dollar’ contracting - fixed schedule and cost are at the core of our projects.
  • We are effective with contracts management and cost control.
