Power and utilities

In a power-hungry world with ever-higher outputs and demands on technology economies, power plant owners, investors and end-customers depend on an uninterrupted service. Munich Re Facultative & Corporate offers insurance solutions that address technical developments and the new risks involved.

Power plants form the backbone of societies and economies. Since most ambitious new power plant projects are privately financed, investors only take on projects that have a suitable insurance programme in place.

The constant developments in technology, material and building practices, along with the challenges that come with the scaling of energy projects involving higher outputs, calls for an experienced partner on the insurance side, one who can keep pace with technical advances to assess and evaluate engineering risks in a detailed and reliable way.

We offer proportional and non-proportional insurance covers, either directly or via a specialist insurance broker. By adapting and combining various engineering insurance products, we develop optimum solutions for complex and demanding industry risks in the power and utilities sector.

5 reasons you should consider talking to us:

1. You want to work with an insurer who provides coverages that meet your requirements, and who understands the dynamics of the energy market.

We always look for solutions and offer services that go beyond the traditional lines of insurance. Our strategy is to combine broker-driven and direct engineering insurance business activities with a focus on operational covers for the power and utilities industry. We can also support you during construction on your sites and with refurbishment of your assets.
