An Engineering, Procurement, Construction, Management (EPCM) contract has the same end result as EPC, but there is complete flexibility for engagement with local resources.
E.g. A local manufacturer may be preferred for specific materials. Local personnel may be trained for particular positions relating to the implementation phases as well as the maintenance term. Longer-term relationships may be established with local vendors for future benefit to all.
The EPCM provider acts as an advocate for both the end users and investors to provide more secure relationships locally as well as a more sustainable outcome for the future.
