Nuclear Power Plant Development
Contract Issues, Claims and Disputes
Nuclear Power Plant Development covers the intricacies of developing a nuclear power plant project from a construction and legal standpoint. It deals with structuring, drafting, and negotiating a wide range of standard and specialised contracts relating to the development of nuclear power-generation projects and also covers the other forms of power-generating facilities. It covers the forms of contract, the law involved internationally, and potential areas of pitfalls and how to avoid them in a systematic format covering various forms of projects. It is suitable for solicitors and barristers involved in the contracting for such facilities and the handling of litigation related to them, government officials involved in the commissioning and development of nuclear facilities for regional governments, and engineers and contractors involved in the actual work of design and contract administration and dispute resolution.
