Energy & Process

Energy and Process

We have been involved in drafting contracts, commercial and risk management and dealing with disputes to Arbitration on major chemical and energy projects in the UK and internationally. These have included processing plants, steel foundries, energy from waste, biomass and coal power stations.

We have worked at a variety of nuclear facilities including power generation, fuel reprocessing and decommissioning nuclear submarines and understand the specialist demands of the nuclear sector. Projects include:

  • AGC Chemical Plant, Lancashire
  • Blackburn Meadows Biomass Powerstation, Sheffield
  • Drax Powerstation, Yorkshire
  • Etileno, Ethylene Cracker Plant, Mexico
  • Runcorn Energy from Waste Plant
  • Sellafield, Cumbria
  • U.S. Steel, Gary Works, Indiana
  • Wilton Energy from Waste, UK

Members of our team have worked in the energy and process sector extensively and understand the sector-specific requirements. We have a broad range of experience with specialist energy and process claims, including:

  • Interface and coordination claims
  • Application of performance specifications
  • Interpretation of design
  • Design clash issues
  • Late information claims
  • Existing facilities claims
  • Strikes and lockouts
  • Commissioning and performance claims

We are aware that these projects often have very high liquidated damages and are difficult to commission to full operating capacity. Therefore, close commercial management, detailed record keeping and submission of timely notifications is essential.

We have experience dealing with the often-complex stakeholder arrangements common in such projects and the potential for conflicting or ambiguous contractual obligations, and the requirement for delicate relationship management.

We have now undertaken three major energy from waste projects, plus biomass and CHP projects and have earned a reputation as the market leader in this challenging sector.

We are continuing to build on our experience and expand our presence in the nuclear industry by strengthening relationships with key strategic partners.
