Offshore Wind Farm, UK
Our professionals were retained by an EPC contractor to assist in preparing a damages claim arising from the construction of an offshore wind farm in the UK.
In addition to working with the contractor’s programming expert, we liaised with nearly twenty PhDs, academics and other technical experts recognized internationally for their expertise in issues such as metallurgy, fracture mechanics, the effects of wind and wave loading on structures, and weld testing and inspection procedures.
Our work included quantifying the EPC contractor’s damages resulting from delays and additional work scope as well as analyzing the employer’s counterclaim. Our assistance in the arbitration extended over nearly three years with work being performed primarily in London with some work undertaken in Shanghai.
Steve Ross served as expert witness on quantum and provided testimony before a three party tribunal under London Court of International Arbitration rules.
