Our nuclear team has unrivalled experience of structuring projects in the nuclear sector. For example:
- in Bulgaria, we advised RWE on its joint venture arrangements with NEK (the Bulgarian state-owned electricity company) for the Belene Nuclear Project. The joint venture arrangements dealt not only with the shareholding arrangements but also with the responsibility for funding the development of the new project, the operating structure and the licensing regulations insofar as they affect the joint venture and the design and construction of the new plant.
- in the UK, our team negotiated the joint venture arrangements for the development of the new nuclear build between Centrica and EdF, following the acquisition of British Energy by EdF.
