Contract Risk Management In Offshore Wind Construction

Contract Risk Management in Offshore Wind


Effectively defining, allocating and managing risk is essential not only for avoiding costly disputes but for the smooth transition between different project phases. As many projects move from construction to O&M, parties are recognising that gaps and unfair risk distribution may appear in contracts.

Now in its fourth year, Windpower Monthly’s Contract Risk Management in Offshore Wind will provide you with practical tools and proactive strategies to help manage these risks within the complex contracting environment of offshore wind.

This is the only forum dedicated to this critical function.

Highlights for 2016 include:

  • Design – defect risk and fitness for purpose in light of MTHojgaard v E.ON
  • Managing risk as high feed-in tariffs and subsidies decrease
  • Contractor and developer views on definitions and risk measures – what steps can both sides take to save time and money when negotiating?
  • Practical in depth look at service contracts : how concepts of contract drafting differ and how this can impact your negotiations

Risk changes and evolves throughout a project lifecycle.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from leading experts in this area and better understand how you can manage contract risk and avoid potentially crippling delays and disputes in your projects.
