Protecting your renewable energy project
From concept to operation, your renewable energy project is at risk, which could be caused by a lack of adherence to contractual requirements, risk management and supply chain issues. We can provide full contract advise, construction and operational insurance programs to protect your investment.
Meeting insurer requirements
We offer due diligence on the design, construction, and operational controls that insurers expect. We achieve this through forming a tripartite relationship between insurers’ engineers, underwriters and you. Preferably this is at the conception and design phase of your project. If you already have a project underway, we can offer a gap analysis on your current insurance programme.

Frequently asked questions
Yes. Insurers prefer to be involved as early as possible. Involving an insurer from the outset clearly benefits your project as;
- they will understand your plant; and
- you will be able to factor in loss mitigation controls they require from the outset. It is far more financially viable from a Capital Expenditure (CAPEX) perspective to do this than trying to retrofit which can be extremely costly.
