FIDIC Silver Book EPC Turnkey Contract Free Download




If you are looking for a free download of the FIDIC Silver Book EPC Turnkey Contract, you have come to the right place. In this article, I will explain what the FIDIC Silver Book is, why it is used for EPC turnkey projects, and where you can find a free download of the latest edition.


What is the FIDIC Silver Book?




The FIDIC Silver Book is a standard form of contract published by the International Federation of Consulting Engineers (FIDIC) for engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) turnkey projects. EPC turnkey projects are those where the contractor is responsible for delivering a complete facility to the employer, ready to operate at the turn of a key. The contractor designs, builds and tests the facility according to the employer's requirements, and assumes most of the risks involved in the project.

The FIDIC Silver Book is also known as the Conditions of Contract for EPC Turnkey Projects. It contains general conditions, guidance for the preparation of particular conditions, forms of securities, letter of tender, contract agreement and dispute adjudication/avoidance agreement. It also provides a clear allocation of risks and obligations between the parties, and sets out the procedures for claims, variations, payments, termination and dispute resolution.


Why is the FIDIC Silver Book used for EPC turnkey projects?




The FIDIC Silver Book is suitable for EPC turnkey projects where:



  • The employer has sufficient time and information to define its requirements and specifications clearly;



  • The project does not involve substantial work underground or in other areas that are difficult to inspect or access;



  • The employer does not intend to supervise or control the contractor's work closely, or to review most of the construction drawings;



  • The contractor has the expertise and experience to design and execute the project efficiently and effectively;



  • The contractor is willing to accept most of the risks involved in the project, such as design errors, unforeseen site conditions, delays, price fluctuations, etc.




The FIDIC Silver Book is not suitable for EPC turnkey projects where:



  • The employer does not have enough time or information to define its requirements or specifications clearly;



  • The project involves substantial work underground or in other areas that are difficult to inspect or access;



  • The employer intends to supervise or control the contractor's work closely, or to review most of the construction drawings;



  • The contractor does not have the expertise or experience to design and execute the project efficiently and effectively;



  • The contractor is not willing to accept most of the risks involved in the project, such as design errors, unforeseen site conditions, delays, price fluctuations, etc.




In such cases, FIDIC recommends that the FIDIC Yellow Book (Conditions of Contract for Plant and Design-Build) be used instead. The FIDIC Yellow Book is more balanced in terms of risk sharing and allows more involvement and input from the employer.
