Damage to Marine Scrubber Systems

The Club is pleased to announce a new product for Q4 2019 - Damage To Marine Scrubber Systems: Additional Costs and Loss of Hire Insurance. This cover is in direct response to valued clients and brokers approaching us for a solution as 1 January 2020 beckons, bringing with it the IMO's global limit of 0.5% sulphur in marine fuels.

This plan is triggered by damage to a vessel's scrubber system. If an owner must switch from a cheaper Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO) to costlier, compliant Low Sulphur Fuel Oil (LFO), this product will cover the difference in fuel costs in the period up to first available repair.

 Also optionally available is cover for additional lump-sum costs for the cleaning of tanks and machinery needed to switch fuel, removal of HFO and net deviation to port, plus a limited standard LOH cover for scrubber damages only.
