Machinery Breakdown and Electronics Equipment Insurance


By insuring movable property, your machines and electronics are secured by insurance coverage against complex natural hazards. However, damage of machinery may be also caused by other reasons, such as a machine design error, defect of material or a manufacturing defect. Very often, damage to machinery occurs due to operator error, clumsiness or negligence. Damage can also be caused by lack of water in the equipment, overpressure or underpressure and also short circuit, overvoltage, induction or insulation fault. Measuring, control or safety devices may also fail. It is for these cases and many others serves the insurance of technical risks, which we offer as machinery breakdown and electronic equipment insurance.
