*Bluewater Energy Services BV v Mercon Steel Structures BV and others

Contract – Termination. The claimant (Bluewater) and the defendants (Mercon) contracted for the fabrication of a tower based soft yoke mooring system for installation as part of the development of an offshore oilfield. Bluewater raised multiple claims arising on the final account as well as issues relating to termination and extensions of time. The Technology and Construction Court held that Bluewater had been entitled to terminate and had validly terminated the contract, and that Mercon had not established that it had been entitled to an extension of time by way of an adjustment to the schedule of key dates. Accordingly, the balance due to Bluewater was €961,324.66.
