Coverage concepts for the aerospace industry

Departing into unchartered waters and exploring new horizons is the Hanseatic way. This curiositiy has driven us, too – it even brought us into space. We are one of only a handful of providers who offer coverages for the construction and transport of satellites. For example, we assist a key global player whose projects range from individual customised solutions to complex series of more than 30 satellites. We are there from the start, when the blueprints are drawn and the configuration are determined. We organise the coverage for all the suppliers involved, and we procure the necessary builders' all-risks insurance. We also assist with the detailed cold, vibration and zero-gravity tests done, for example, at the European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC) in Noordwijk.

And when the satellites are installed in the launch vehicle (e.g. at the European Kourou Space Centre in French Guiana), we have already dound the appropriate escorts and transport insurances. The countdown starts, and everyone's fingers are crossed!

In such a highly specialised market where even seemingly small mistakes can cause millions of euros of damage, you need a profound understanding of the matter at hand to be able to identify risks and clearly present them to insurance companies. Thanks to the trust that our clients invest in us, we have been able to develop a level of expertise in this subject that is unique on the market. The orbit is waiting!
