Update: E.ON Approved to Appeal in Robin Rigg Case

  • Authorities

“As a consequence of the Court’s decision, the Group re-recognises the provision of DKK 195 million as a loss debited under Special Items. Special Items is now expected to amount to DKK 0 in 2015 against the previous guidance of an income of DKK 195 million. Besides this, the financial guidance for 2015 is not affected,” MT Højgaard said in a press release issued on 27 November.

In November, the Supreme Court went back and forth on the case:

The Supreme Court in London will withdraw the ruling in favour of MT Højgaard from 5 November, when it rejected an application from E.ON to allow an appeal against the ruling in an old dispute regarding the Robin Rigg offshore wind farm.

MT Højgaard said the Supreme Court will further evaluate E.ON’s application for an appeal, which could mean that that the dispute is not finally settled, describing the withdrawal itself as unusual.

5 November, 2015: The Supreme Court rejects E.ON's application to appeal

The UK Supreme Court has upheld the UK Court of Appeal’s April ruling that Denmark’s MT Højgaard is not liable to cover the costs of fixing weaknesses discovered in grouted connections of the foundations at the Robin Rigg Offshore wind farm off the west coast of Scotland.

The Supreme Court’s ruling is final, and the matter is considered to be settled.
