In a deal that was completed on 3 December 2018, ClarkeKann’s Chairman, John Toigo, represented Taiwan Power Company (Taipower) in the acquisition of part of Wesfarmers’ interest in the Bengalla Coal Joint Venture.

Taipower is an integrated electrical power utility that generates, transmits, distributes, and sells electricity in Taiwan.
