In 2007, the company was awarded the contract by site developer E.on to design, manufacture and install 60 monopile foundations at the project in the Solway Firth between Scotland and England.
After installation, weaknesses were discovered in the grouted connections. E.on claimed that MT Højgaard was liable for the problem with the structures, but MT Højgaard denied liability arguing that the group had observed the applicable international standards as required by the client.
MT Højgaard has warned, as a result of the ruling, it could take a DKK195 million (EUR26.1 million) hit to its 2014 financial results.
The company is looking at taking the case to the Court of Appeal.
