Wind farm projects
Client: Engineering contractor
Advising an European contractor in relation to ongoing issues arising out of contracts for the design development, manufacture and supply of wind farm turbines, drive assemblers and related equipment for a number of off and on-shore wind farm projects.
A full and final compromise was reached with the owner.
To assist with these issues, Fenwick Elliott provided on-going project support, including assisting with project correspondence and other documentation.
We also provided detailed advice on a variety of project agreements in relation to both pre and post contract issues including interpretation of various contract clauses to establish the client’s entitlement to further payment and extensions of time.
Where required, we assisted in the preparation of various claims and advice in respect of commercial discussions and negotiations with the employer and/or one of the client’s subcontractors.
By working alongside the client as the project progressed we were able to assist the client in the management and resolution of potential disputes as they arose which meant that the client was able to avoid becoming involved in formal disputes.
