      Urgent lease renegotiation for the repowering of the oldest commercial windfarm in Scotland

      Image of Hagshaw turbines

      Size
      14 wind turbines up to 80MW

      Location
      Scotland

      Client
      Private Landowner

      Our landowning client asked us to explore their options when the developer sought to amend their draft lease for the repowering of a windfarm site and extend the lease term by nine years to maximise the life of the next generation of turbines. This complex situation required foresight and attention to detail to consider appropriate variations to lease terms.

      It was clear that an uplift in rental was possible for the extended term but on closer examination of the detail of the draft lease, together with consideration of the potential financial risks to the landowner in having apparatus operating beyond normal market timeframes, we identified other opportunities and protections which could be brought into play during negotiation with the developer.

      By understanding the short-term and long-term consequences for our landowning client - and drawing on our experience in both the developer and landowning sectors - we future-proofed the revised lease, built in several landowner-friendly terms as well as ensuring better rental conditions over the extended period of use.

      We delivered over and above what our client expected and within tight timescales and have now been instructed to review other projects in our client’s portfolio. Our ability to identify what’s down the road, has resulted in a lease structure that’s fit for the future.

      Ros has built a formidable team in Scotland with a deep bank of knowledge in all areas of renewable energy project management. Lesley Kelly in particular has provided 3R Energy with first class support across all aspects of legal land management, including (but not limited to) Servitudes, Options, Leases and renegotiation of Lease life terms. I could not recommend Ros and Lesley’s Renewables team at Bidwells highly enough
