Insurance

Reliable cause and risk information for the built environment and heavy industry

Reliable information is key in the insurance sector both in terms of the susceptibility of an insured asset and the establishment of cause in a claim. We offer detailed, objective and frequently updated asset susceptibility information based on satellite data analysis supported by our engineering expertise and experience. We also apply the same techniques to forensic investigations to identify the true cause of claim incidents. 

Loss adjustment

Don’t pay a claim until you have all the information. Weekly ground surface and structure movement data since 2014 with millimetric accuracy probably already exists for your case. Combined with our engineering expertise and experience it may be possible to reliably establish a cause.

Detailed subsidence maps

While subsidence maps based on geological conditions already exist, we have combined these with actual subsidence data measured by satellite and other parameters using our geotechnical expertise to produce subsidence susceptibility maps with greater reliability and detail down to individual buildings. 

Detailed landslide susceptibility maps

While landslide susceptibility maps based on topography, geology and geomorphology already exist, they can be low-resolution, subjective and out of date due to climate change. We have combined these with actual movement data measured by satellite and other parameters using our geotechnical expertise to produce detailed maps. Not only do they provide susceptibility, but they also warn of possible imminent landslide so that remediation measures can be undertaken proactively and more cost effectively. 

Detailed sinkhole susceptibility maps

Sinkholes occur in certain geological conditions and their prevalence is increasing due to climate change. We assess the susceptibility of regions based on historical subsidence data and provide early warning of possible imminent sinkholes for proactive remediation and loss reduction.

Infrastructure insurer?

Do you insure infrastructure such as roads, railways and utility services against damage and third-party liability? We provide reliable information on the condition and susceptibility of these assets to hazards such as landslide and subsidence and even offer an early warning system for possible imminent failure to allow proactive investigation and remediation to minimise losses.

Mining insurer?

Do you insure mining assets against damage and third-party liability? We provide reliable information on the condition and susceptibility of these assets to hazards such as tailings dam failure and even offer an early warning system for possible imminent failure to allow proactive investigation and remediation to minimise losses.

Energy insurer?

Do you insure Energy assets such as offshore platforms and pipelines against damage and third-party liability? We provide reliable information on the condition and susceptibility of these assets to hazards such as landslide and subsidence and even offer an early warning system for possible imminent failure to allow proactive investigation and remediation to minimise losses.

Ship discharges

Do you investigate claims for polluting discharges by shipping? We use satellite data to identify the source and spread of marine pollutants.
