MT Hojgaard v EON Climate and Renewables and another

Citation: [2014] BLR 450, [2014] EWHC 1088 (TCC)

This matter arose out of the construction of the Robin Rigg offshore wind farm and concerned the determination of contractual responsibility for the failure of the grouted connection between the monopile foundations and the transition pieces, which had failed due to slippage. The court held that the contractor, MT Højgaard, had not been negligent in the design of the grouted connection but that it was nonetheless responsible for the cost of rectification by reason of its breach of the ‘fitness for purpose’ obligation within its construction contract with E.ON.
