Wind-power projects represent significant capital investments of many millions. So it’s no surprise that, average claims for wind-turbine failures run between $200,000 and $600,000. With such hefty claim costs, it is important for insurers to understand the root cause of failures to reduce future risks. To fully understand the loss-adjustment process, renewable energy insurance company, GCube (www.gcube-insurance.com) has partnered with Romax Technology (www.romaxtech.com) to conduct forensic investigations of turbine failures. The partnership helps shed light on what contributes to a turbine’s overall health, and what extends its life and increases reliability, says GCube.
