Access Wins Commercial Advisor of the Year Award

Access has been awarded the 2013 'Commercial Advisor of The Year'prize by the Middle East Solar Industry Association (MESIA) at a gala dinner ceremony in Abu Dhabi.

The prestigious event was attended by over 200 dignitaries, government officials and senior business executives from across the Middle East.

Access specializes in developing power projects in the GCC and sub-Saharan Africa, providing transaction services on government-tendered I(W)PP projects in the Middle East, Turkey and Africa. The firm also serves as a platform for overseas technology leaders in gaining a foothold in the region's power sector.

Access was won this coveted accolade on the back of its high profile commercial advisory mandates in Saudi Arabia, UAE, Oman, Morocco and Sub-Saharan Africa.

The Dubai-based advisory firm is currently advising on 90% of all I(W)PP project tenders in the Middle East and North Africa.

Access' clients include the world's largest utility company, solar CSP developer as well as the one of the world's largest wind developers and solar PV developer.

Reda El Chaar, Managing Director of Access said "We are very proud to be the first home grown advisory firm in the Middle East power sector to win this prestigious award."

"Historically, to structure power deals you had to import best practices from abroad," Mr. El Chaar added. "Those days are long gone. Today we have successful regional developers that are redefining the best practices for the industry."
