Engineering project risks

Large-scale engineering projects, such as roads, bridges, tunnels, airports, seaports, hydropower plants, dams or mines, call for specialized technical and insurance knowledge. Munich Re Facultative & Corporate offers both comprehensive insurance solutions and qualified teams.

Engineering risks extend from construction projects to operational power – there is no "one size fits all" insurance product. We develop customized risk transfer solutions to respond to complex demands and enable industry clients to realize their objectives.

Our global approach is based on highly specialized engineering and construction expertise, backed by financial capacity and underwriting excellence.

5 reasons you should consider talking to us:

1. You need a specific engineering insurance solution for the construction/erection phase of a technically ambitious project.

At Munich Re Facultative & Corporate, our approach is to combine broker-driven and direct engineering business activities. Our focus is on construction and erection projects, such as roads, bridges, tunnels, mines, chemical plants, refineries and every type of power generation plant.

We offer comprehensive engineering insurance solutions, such as CAR, EAR and DSU. While your projects might be complex ones, involving financial and technical challenges, we will ensure things run smoothly as possible. Rely on one contact partner, one business approach and one underwriting philosophy.

Find a customized engineering solution that is fit for purpose: Talk to us.

2. You want to talk to insurance experts that understand the specifics of your engineering project in technical depth.

At Munich Re Facultative & Corporate, we walk the walk: Most of our 30 engineering experts have worked as engineers in the field. Based on their practical experience and insurance knowledge, they understand the language of your technical experts, project managers and the construction workers on site. This is an invaluable asset, since our experts know to ask the right questions and know how and what to look for to mitigate risks – before they can slow down your project or increase costs.

In addition, you can benefit from the expertise of Munich Re's worldwide (multilingual) engineering network. Using such synergies means better consulting and support for your projects.

3. You want a partner on the insurance side you can rely on in the long term.

Our approach is backed by outstanding financial capacity and demonstrated excellence. We write and retain lead lines, and have low employee turnover. This means that our clients can benefit from both financial resources and human capital. Our company history of over 130 successful years clearly demonstrates our ability to withstand critical financial phases.

Make sure you work with a long-term insurance partner: Talk to us.

4. You need active risk management advice during construction.

During construction projects, owners and insurers have one mutual motivation: to keep the project duration and costs as planned. As we all know, this can be quite challenging because construction projects are complex and many technical details can delay projects and inflate costs.

Since our experienced staff may have dealt with similar projects in other parts of the world, this knowledge on the site often helps to mitigate risks before damage can occur. Our experienced risk experts accompany your risk management and help you achieve your project goals with in-house and external risk engineers.

Mitigate risks before they happen: Talk to us.

5. You want our underwriters to support you with potential claims settlement.

We are fully behind you — even should the worst come to the worst: Our underwriters always stay in charge of their account and are part of potential claims settlements. Their technical expertise and our overview of other cases can prove invaluable in settling your claims.
