Energy is one of the key sectors that keep the country going. It has many aspects and involves many industrial facilities, functional units and processes. All power plants and substations (generation, distribution and transformer substations) incorporate a large number of industrial facilities, functional units and processes. It is an industry where standard terms and conditions of coverage are simply inappropriate. Insurance policies must, on the contrary, be unique and tailored to each specific facility. Insurance professionals working in this area must adhere to particularly high standards. This is true for underwriters, who develop policies, and for loss settlement specialists, who must quickly and efficiently fulfill the obligations of the insurance company to the customer
Almost all energy facilities are subject to a large number of technological risks. The presence of large amounts of flammable substances such as fuels or lubricants, on the one hand, and heat sources on the other hand, cause an increased risk of fire. Equipment with moving parts, some of which rotate at high speed, are subject to failure and have the potential to damage surrounding property, etc. All of this may apply more or less to various energy facilities, but risk factors are often not obvious or are not assessed properly, though the consequences may be catastrophic. It is enough to recall the recent infamous accident at one of Russia’s one-of-a-kind hydropower facilities. Insurance cannot replace a comprehensive risk-management system designed to reduce all risks to a minimum, but it is certainly one of the very few ways to obtain compensation for material losses when accidents do occur.
Thus, AIG’ comprehensive approach to energy facility insurance includes the following basic insurance programs against power industry risks:
In addition to the standard coverage, the power facility insurance program can include a variety of additions and extensions, such as, for example, compensation for the costs of providing access to damaged property, clearing debris and rubble, automatic protection of small repair or construction/erection projects, etc.
We believe that liability insurance should be of particular interest to power companies because of the significant harm to third parties and the surrounding area that can result from an accident at a power facility. You can also obtain coverage of damage to third parties (recipients of electric power for production purposes) as a result of accidents (fire, explosion, etc.) at the insured facility.
