Axis strengthens link with renewables group
Axis Insurance has entered into an agreement with a renewable energy expert services company to give it greater insight into risks and opportunities in the renewable energy industry.
There has been a relationship between Axis and The Renewables Consulting Group, which is based in London, for a number of years.
Axis Insurance, a business segment of Bermudian-based Axis Capital Holdings Limited, has now entered into a global consultancy services framework agreement with RCG.
The agreement covers technical, commercial and management consulting services for Axis Insurance's portfolio of renewable energy assets.
In a statement, Axis said the agreement will enable it to provide insured clients and brokers with “enhanced value and industry leading services”.
It is also expected that RCG will assist Axis with claims investigations, expert witness services, management consulting and market intelligence reporting.
Richard Carroll, global head of renewable energy at Axis Insurance, said: “RCG has provided exceptional support to AXIS Insurance over the past year, including engineering services and project surveys.
“They have strong experience in the renewable energy sector, and we are delighted to have strengthened the relationship to the benefit of our renewables clients.”
Tom Cain, head of US renewables at Axis Insurance, said: “RCG has a team of experienced and knowledgeable renewable energy professionals who will help Axis Insurance leverage our own expertise and resources to further the development of products and services for our clients.”
Sebastian Chivers, chief executive officer at The Renewables Consulting Group, said: “Having worked extensively with Richard, Tom and the rest of the team of renewable energy experts at Axis Insurance for nearly a decade, I'm tremendously pleased to further strengthen that relationship through this global agreement.
“Axis Insurance is a forward-looking company and a great client to work with. The team at RCG have already been supporting Axis in a wide range of geographies around the world, with both mainstream and emerging technologies.
“We look forward to working with Axis Insurance to great effect, and thank them for their continued support.”
