BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

China Re launches offshore wind farm coverage at Lloyd’s

Offshore wind farm in the East China Sea

China Re Corp. on Monday said it has launched a renewable energy consortium at Lloyd’s of London that focuses on project-specific reinsurance for the construction and operation of offshore wind farms in mainland China.

China Re’s syndicate 2088 will manage and co-lead the consortium with Canopius syndicate 4444 and Travelers syndicate 5000, China Re said in a statement, adding the consortium is also supported by Chaucer syndicate 1084, a member of the China Re Group, Axis syndicate 1686 and GCube Underwriting Ltd.

The consortium covers construction all risks, erection all risks and third-party liability, and can provide capacity of up to $225 million per risk, the statement said.

The Chinese government has committed to providing $360 billion to renewable power development by 2020, the statement said, spurring the sector.

“China is investing heavily in renewable energy, so there is a compelling opportunity for Lloyd’s to be involved,” Oliver Litterick, renewable energy underwriter at China Re syndicate 2088, said in the statement. “This consortium will be able to access China Re’s domestic client base of offshore wind specialists to bring this new and diverse premium to the London market.”
