DWF also maintains a strong nuclear practice, offering a 360-degree view of the nuclear project cycle. This is driven from the experience of supporting clients in all aspects of their business, from feasibility studies for a new nuclear plant development, financing and construction, to operational issues, uranium mining, fuel fabrication, storage, trading and transportation, as well as waste disposal and decommissioning.
Our experts have a wealth of industry and sector expertise and have experience of developing, financing, commissioning and addressing operational issues associated with power plants and associated fuel and logistics issues. We can offer advice and support to developers or funders of IPP projects on a global scale; whether CCGT, conventional thermal or nuclear power generation. In particular, we have significant experience of advising developers, investors and operators in connection with the development of new nuclear build projects globally; having advised on over $200bn of investment in new nuclear power plants.
Our specialists also have unrivalled experience in the waste management and decommissioning sector. Dealing with regulatory compliance and meeting international safety and non-proliferation treaty obligations is an area of particular expertise. We are used to supporting clients to understand the regulated and de-regulated electricity markets in their operating jurisdictions. In light of the impact of electricity market reforms it is of great importance for our energy experts to be ahead of the competition in understanding key opportunities and threats in relation to our clients' businesses.
Our team includes individuals that have an extensive level of experience of working within the water sector. We act for multiple water utility companies as well as a wide variety of businesses involved in the water and waste water supply chain and related parts of the sector on a global level.
