Electrical, Windfarms, & Solar. IKEA furniture and wind farm projects share a lot of similarities. Flatpacks of turbines consist of tower, blades, blades, and a container with components. We dealt with issues ranging from unsuitable access roads, damaged blades, incorrect componentry, outdated manuals, and failure to obtain AEMO approvals (which we assisted with). We also appeared as expert witnesses on cost disputes.
