Infrastructure

Our infrastructure team is known for its particular strength in advising on high profile and complex projects, covering energy, oil & gas, transportation, electricity, water, desalination and renewables.

We provide a first class service and assist at any stage of the project. Our typical involvement includes tender offers, project structuring and construction advice. In addition, we assist in the negotiation of concession agreements (BOO, BOT etc.), project finance agreements, EPC agreements and operation and maintenance agreements, sub-contractor agreements, advancing plans and obtaining approvals, dealings with committees and government authorities. Our services also extend to providing legal support and advice during operation and use of facilities.

 

Our broad experience includes the Jerusalem and Tel Aviv Light Railways; electrification of the Israel Railways network; the Gilboa hydroelectric pumped storage power station; a power plant at the Dead Sea; the Ashalim solar energy thermal power plant; the Tzafit combined cycle power plant; the Etgal Gas Turbine Combined Cycle Power Plant; and the new Israel Police Training Center.

 

We have also handled desalination projects at home and abroad, wastewater and municipal waste treatment facilities, and a natural gas pipeline.

 

Barnea & Co. offers its clients the benefit of in-depth local market knowledge and extensive experience in order to reduce the risks associated with operating in different jurisdictions.
