Clarke Willmott supports company to secure Hinkley Point C contract

National law firm Clarke Willmott LLP has supported client Ingersoll Rand to win a major Hinkley Point C contract.

Lawyers specialising in energy generation at the firm worked with a subsidiary of the group – Ingersoll Rand Air Solutions Hibon S.A.R.L – to secure the contract to design, manufacture, transport and install seven TEP TEU compressors to HPC for waste processing along with support and commissioning, under FIDIC contract arrangements.

Clarke Willmott construction partner Zoe Stollard (pictured) was brought in to support Ingersoll Rand Air Solutions through the contract process and was instructed to act on their behalf.

Emmy Klitsaki-Fortis, Assistant General Counsel at Ingersoll Rand, said: “Clarke Willmott have provided invaluable help and support on the Hibon compressor project principally through Zoe Stollard. I have very much appreciated Zoe’s professional expertise, her responsiveness, dynamism in negotiations but above all her positive attitude. I cannot thank her enough. We look forward to continuing working with Clarke Willmott in the future. Ingersoll Rand are delighted to be supporting EDF and the UK’s drive to achieve NetZero by 2050.” 

Zoe Stollard said: “Working with Emmy and the team at Ingersoll Rand has been enjoyable and rewarding, advising them through the complex FIDIC contract process. I am delighted they will be supporting the build of HPC and have every confidence they will meet and exceed HPC expectations. Over several years Clarke Willmott has acted for a number of principal contractors involved at HPC and look forward to developing our relationship with Ingersoll Rand in the future.”
