HEPC partners’ criteria
Besides being an investor for humanitarian and environmental projects, HEPC is also the developer of these projects. The role of HEPC is to be the sponsor, who is responsible for the overall organization and financial and quality control of these projects. For the HEPC Ecosystem, the 4 main projects (energy, water, agriculture, livestock) are dependent on each other and HEPC oversees these by using state-of-the-art ERP and SCM computer technology.
HEPC applies the highest possible criteria to guarantee best Quality projects
HEPC uses only the highest European standards and processes for their projects. When it comes to developing and delivering projects, HEPC has implemented a concept of achieving the highest quality.
HEPC has performed research and in-depth studies for years and has selected only companies with a proven track record in their specific industry, whether it is in energy or water, agriculture or livestock, of delivery in developing countries.
HEPC has found the best of breed suppliers who ensure consistent performance, quality and, for all involved, peace of mind. That is literally true for our Friesian bred cows who can produce some 25 liters of milk per day. If you take 4,000 of those wonderful animals, you are talking about 100,000 liters of milk per day and a large number of families benefitting from their dairy produce.
Building personal relationships is key
This passion for quality of HEPC founder Kees de Haan did not start recently, nor overnight. It is the natural result of having built relationships with and expertise on the different industries that together form the HEPC Ecosystem and the humanitarian and environmental aid projects that make HEPC so worthwhile to humanity. Kees and Wim also now have years of working together with our partner companies.
In large projects there are many challenges to be met and there will always be times that there will be new difficult situations for which hard decisions have to been taken. If the relationship between the partners has a personal side to it and has been proven over time, just like in a good marriage, you do not have to agree on each other all the time, but still it is possible to overcome problems fairly easily together.
Dutch livestock, agriculture and energy from waste solutions
Being founded and our head office being located in the Netherlands, most of our solutions come from our country, in the biggest delta of Europe and half under sea level, the Netherlands.
Water management is in our blood
You can imagine that the first form of organization in our country was water management and through the ages we have always been the number one in the world for dredging and building ports. The city of Rotterdam was for the longest time the largest port in the world.
HEPC partners have been carefully Pre-selected for HEPC RFP process
As depicted in the timeline picture, development of each project, starts off with about 3 months of Feasibility study, at the end of which HEPC sits down with its partners to discuss and negotiate the contractual agreements and terms, based upon the client requirements and decides which partners are most fit for the development execution phases and which are not.
Jobs! Use local resources and train skills to sustain independently
The whole purpose of HEPC projects is to make people grow and manage the systems and plants locally. The Feasibility study includes finding out the best way to use locally available people and other resources and to determine what is required to develop them along with developing the projects themselves. As soon as possible from the start these will be hired and involved and be trained to independently manage the systems that we jointly develop. This applies both to management at different levels as well as to workers on the job. To HEPC this policy is of utmost importance for the safety, security and success rate of our projects. Appreciation and commitment to our joint efforts and products to be delivered are of vital importance to all of us.
State-of-the-art but always proven technology
Although at HEPC we research new technology closely, we will work closely with our partners to make sure that we do not introduce risks into our projects, where we know that there is already a proven solution at hand.
A good example of this is in Solar power fields where we have decide between the older technology of PV versus the newer technology called HCPV. PV is a power system designed to supply usable solar power by means of photovoltaics while HCPV refers to Heliostat Concentrator Photovoltaic which is a specialized solar PV technology using large lenses to focus and beam concentrated sunlight to solar cells. As it turns out, the newer technology can only be used in certain region on the globe. Click here to see more information on HCPV:
There are apps available to learn about farming. HEPC is looking into using newest communication and information technology ICT, to support their products and services.

Continuous improvement and innovation
At HEPC we all strive for continuous improvement, as we work on our processes and procedures to improve our communication and logistics and financial systems to the latest.
Example: Can we use Ag Apps
Since the economical recession due to the fall of the oil prices, there is a growing interest for agriculture and livestock in developing countries. At the same time Ag or agriculture apps have been developed specifically for these industries for use to educate farmers and monitor and control their operational systems. These will often only work if there is internet connection available. Therefore, HEPC and its partners will either work without these new technology tools or, as can be expected, we will include the installation of internet with locally available wi-fi to make the use of the phone apps possible in the fields and the green houses.
