Private Power Projects

Complex, integrated agreement structures

The private power industry is not merely just a different type of construction. Power projects involve complex, integrated agreement structures that have to balance all the elements of an industrial construction project — from project financing through to commissioning and operations. Assistance with contractual structuring may be required at all or any one of a variety of phases: fuel purchase, power sales, development, design, bonding, procurement and construction. Problems can occur on all projects.

Combining our experience on turnkey gas and biomass fired co-generation projects with our advocacy experience gives our clients the benefits of both when they face a dispute that requires resolution on one of their power projects.
