Project Cargo Insurance

The world’s needs for energy, transport, industrial infrastructure and the means to exploit natural resources has resulted in many opportunities for financiers, contractors and manufacturers worldwide. The supply and transportation of equipment to meet those needs, together with new investment in clean power and replacement of infrastructure in developed countries, requires a specialist cargo insurance policy.

Such projects may include:

  • Power plants including gas, coal and nuclear
  • Green energy including solar, wind, hydro and bio mass
  • Petrochemical, paper and pulp, ferrous and non ferrous plants
  • Bridges and buildings

Today’s supply chain for a modern infrastructure project can involve numerous manufacturers from several countries, a number of differing contractors and an array of supply routes that will involve any combination of land transport, sea, river, rail, road or air. Each party may have different insurance policies with different terms and conditions, deductibles and restrictive clauses.

Project Cargo* Insurance from ACE allows the Principal to have one policy that protects against damage to equipment during transit to the project and if required, can provide insurance to protect against delay in start up as a result of a marine peril.

We can provide our clients with protection to meet the needs of all parties concerned, including:

  • Owners and principals
  • Managing contractors and main contractors
  • Contractors and sub-contractors
  • Manufacturers and/or suppliers
  • Banks and/or financial institutions
