The project was given the original deadline by the Delaware bankruptcy court to take steps, such as hiring a new contractor, to recommence construction on the project, which ran into legal difficulties when building contractor Mammoet-Starneth walked off the project in May 2017 and filed for bankruptcy in December.

Challenger also said in the announcement that it had allotted 47,593,700 new ordinary shares of £0.01 each comprising 47.5mln shares for the conversion of £95,000 of the remaining original convertible notes issued in 2015 and a further 93,700 shares in relation to interest on this convertible note.

The firm added that the shares were expected to be admitted to trading on 12 September.
