MT Højgaard loses wind turbine case

MT Højgaard loses wind turbine case

04-08-2017 12:00:00


MT Højgaard has been sentenced to pay almost DKK 200 million by the British Supreme Court, for repairs of damage to the foundations of turbines at the offshore wind farm Robin Rigg, owned by E.ON Climate and Renewables.

The dispute was about the responsibility to pay for the repairs of damage that occurred because there was an error in the calculations to the recognized international standards that the Danish company had followed in the design.

When MT Højgaard was warned that there were errors in international standards shortly after the completion of the foundations in the offshore wind turbine, they informed E.ON Climate and Renewables. The two companies found that it would cost 26,25 million Euro - almost DKK 200 million - to repair the damage.

But they could not agree who should pay for the repairs.
At the first court, the arrow pointed at MT Højgaard, while the Appeal Court in 2015 dismissed the Danish company for financial responsibility.
But now the highest court has turned it over again - and unanimously decided that the bill will be paid by MT Højgaard.
