Contractors Plant

We can provide the following cover

Whilst cover for Contractors Plant and Machinery can be written as part of a Contractors All Risks Policy, when the equipment is used on multiple sites, where a specific standalone policy is required contractually or there is no Contract Works cover required we can provide cover on a standalone basis under our Contractors Plant and Machinery cover. 

Material Damage

Our policy which is based on the Munich Re form provides coverage for owned Machinery and Plant including Spares if declared on a commercial All Risks basis. The Munich Re form is regarded as the industry standard wording which has stood the test of both time and courts across the globe. The base cover can be extended considerably by endorsement depending on the contract requirements.

  • Water well drilling rigs and equipment
  • Oil gas and/ or geothermal drilling rigs and equipment
  • Inland transit
  • Underground machinery and equipment

    Note that all the extensions are subject to underwriting information and there is no guarantee that we can provide the coverage requested.

Limits Available

Know more
We are very flexible when it comes to the limits available for Contractors plant and Machinery.

We have provided cover for Projects where the maximum exposure has been USD75m + with single plant item values being in excess of USD2.5m

The limitation on the total amount of cover we can provide is driven by the availability of Reinsurance and as yet we have experienced no restriction in capacity for this class.
