Case study

See how we’re embracing the challenge of the growing renewable energy sector.

  • By recognising that we had not previously been making the most of our international opportunities in the growing Renewable Energy sector, we were empowered to take a more proactive approach.

     

    We began a long-term programme to actively seek territories where our strong credentials could deliver service and support that would truly benefit customers in those regions.

     

    South Africa was identified as somewhere where widespread development in the power industry will be taking place. Over the last 20 years, the country has made enormous 
strides socially and economically and now has an urgent need to keep up with its escalating power consumption.

     

    The unique strength of our global network means we can offer our South African customers vast know-how, the right coverage and a leading claims service – all backed by a strong credit rating.

     

    With thorough preparation in place, we utilised our London Market expertise, working closely with our network partners and brokers, to tender for and win new wind farm and solar park business.

     

    Headline successes

    • Collaborating locally and globally across our global network to provide expertise and support for new customers in South Africa
    • Demonstrating an understanding of the individual needs of our customers on the continent
    • Delivering a joined-up service with our Marine business
    • Significantly increasing our client base in South Africa
    • Proactively planning and preparing to maximise opportunities.
