Norwegian Hull Club moves to new offices, forms Offshore Renewables team

Norwegian Hull Club yesterday December 7th relocated to a new landmark building in Bergen. It said that the building, Skipet, was “a bold, prestigious development with a strong focus on sustainability, being classed as BREEAM Excellent”.

The Club said that, as it continued to expand its product and service offering to meet the evolving needs of its clients and members, a new base of operations better suited to the challenges and opportunities of today and tomorrow was called for.

Meanwhile, Norwegian Hull Club has strengthened its offshore energy industry team. The Club said that there was “a pressing need for the world to transition to a more sustainable economy and low-carbon future”. It has therefore established a dedicated Offshore Renewables team.

The team is headed by Georg Nygaard, Head of Global Energy & Specialty. Its main focus is providing covers for the development and operation of offshore wind farms worldwide, with The Club’s service concept well to the fore. There will be a particular emphasis on floating technology still in development.

Based in London, Cecilie Pedersen is Norwegian Hull Club’s primary contact for Offshore Wind Farms.

Bin Wang will take the position of Senior Underwriter, Offshore Renewables. He has more than nine years’ experience from working in our Energy, Builders’ Risks, and Special Risks teams. Now, in addition to wind farms and other offshore renewable energy installations, Bin will manage products and services for contractors and play an instrumental role in the development of our Offshore Renewables portfolio.

The Club will be offering Claims Lead for selected projects and wind farms in the coming years.

Lukas Carbol will be the first point of contact for Renewables claims. He was recently promoted to Claims Handler with The Club and has two years’ experience handling energy and builders’ risks claims.

Starting 2021, Norwegian Hull Club will also increase its capacity within Offshore Renewables, with an aim to offer increased shares.

With extensive experience from the marine and energy segments as Claims Leader, Norwegian Hull Club will offer to take the Claims Lead position for some specially selected projects and wind farms. Other Offshore Renewable Projects will also be considered by The Club in this regard.

As mentioned, the Offshore Renewables Team will further focus on products and services for Renewable Contractors, including (but not limited to):

  • Marine Insurances
  • Contractual liabilities related to renewable projects
  • Deductible buy-downs related to renewable projects.
