Project scope management includes defining and controlling things included and not included in the project. Effective project scope determination is crucial for project success. Failure to accurately interpret client’s needs and problems will produce misleading scope of work. This can cause rework or additional effort; consequently, may increase project cost and time to complete. Project scope statement is created early in the initiation phase of a project, and it helps steer the project in the right direction.
Produce a Project Scope statement for the Warrigal Downs Energy Hub Project and Include the Following;
Project scope description-a brief description or project summary providing purpose and justification of the Warrangal Downs Energy Hub project
State the objectives of the Project (high-level requirements)
Project deliverables- a specific list of results produced by the project
Project boundaries- list deliverables that are an outside of the project scope or exclusions
Project constraints (e.g Triple constrains, risk, technology, resources, physical constraints such as space or facilities, etc.)
Project assumptions- a list of thoughts that are believed to be true yet need to be confirmed
Identify project stakeholders 8. Project roles and responsibilities within the project team
The Warrigal Downs Energy Hub ABC Energy Corporation has won a bid for a new solar, wind and hydro-electric Energy Hub, to be known as the ‘Warrigal Downs Hub’. The proposed Hub sits within a remote Southern coastal zone of South Australia and features several watercourses including a small river. All watercourses flow into the ocean. There are hilly regions with caves along much of the coast. This land is used by the current landowner for the grazing of livestock and growing cereal crops across the plains. It has been designated for this use since 1844. Operations and Maintenance Facility (OMF)
1. Operations including site offices; car parking; storage of smaller parts; workshops
2. Battery storage (batteries; smaller transformers)
3. Major Transformer and links to the high-voltage transmission line.
4. Other services (water, telecommunications, low voltage power) to be connected from existing services. Sewerage for the OMF is captured onsite and pumped out of large holding tanks for treatment offsite. This facility adopts a large hardstand zone, site clearance significance to accommodate the infrastructure for this component. Solar Panels These will ideally be located on near-level plains. New access roads will be constructed, and services will be trenched, linking panels back to the transformer site.
Wind Turbines These will be typically located through hilly zones to maximise use of windy zones along the coast. New access roads with wide sweeping bends are required to allow transportation of long turbine blades and other components on low loader trucks. Services will be trenched to link turbines back to the transformer site. Hydro Energy.
This is proposed to store energy, with the construction of dams at high and low levels the intent. Water can be pumped from low to high, then released downstream through a powergenerating turbine. Concrete spillways direct flow to a low-level dam. Water is topped up from nearby creeks or the ocean. Access Roads, Fencing and Gates Access roads are typically unsealed and used for maintenance access once construction is complete.
Fencing and gates restrict public access to the site, in particular, the transformer and battery storage site. Your Project Team You are a newly formed project team within the ABC Energy Corporation.
