This is considerable overlap between energy work and construction and engineering. One of my first ever cases was the arbitration between Motherwell Bridge v Highland Fabricators about the Hutton Tension Leg Platform, which focussed on welding and fabrication issues.
Many of my cases have been about the design, construction and operation of power plants and FPSOS.
Many other instructions have been about the full gamut of issues about mines and mining, both deep surface and opencast.
I have done cases about welding and corrosion, some in pipelines and some in other types of structures.
A number of my cases have involved Windfarms. Some were contractual claims about their construction and others to do with defects in them.
I also conducted a very long and heavy case in the Chancery Division about nuclear reprocessing at Windscale.
Examples of reported cases are:
- British Nuclear Group Sellafield Ltd v (1) Kernkraftwerk Brokdorf GMBH & Co OHG (2) Gemeinschaftskernkraftwerk Grohnde GMBH & co OHG (3) e.on Kernkraft GMBH  EWHC 2245 (Chancery Division)
- BHP Petroleum Ltd v British Steel Plc  2 All ER (Comm) 133;  2 Lloyds Rep 272 (Court of Appeal)
- Wärtsilä France SAS v Genergy Plc  EWHC 1966 (TCC); 92 Con LR 112 (TCC)
