Facility will offer project cargo, heavy lifts, and cargo delay in start-up along with comprehensive risk engineering services

Liberty Specialty Markets has launched a new Lloyd’s facility for the London Market, the Liberty Project Cargo Consortium (LPCC), to underwrite global project-related cargo risks. The facility, Consortium 7763, offers capacity to underwrite risks up to $205m.

Alongside insurance of risks including project cargo, heavy lifts, and cargo delay in start-up, LPCC provides worldwide clients with comprehensive risk engineering services.

With LSM as lead, Consortium 7763 underwrites and binds risks under a single stamp on behalf of supporting syndicates including AEGIS, Antares, Apollo, AXIS, Chaucer, and Munich Re Syndicate.

“The energy transition, changes to global supply chains, new manufacturing processes, and other exciting industrial and civic developments are prompting an unprecedented number of new, large-scale projects worldwide,” said Liberty Specialty Markets’ head of Marine Division, Michael Burle.

”The Consortium offers significantly larger capacity than any other currently in the market, which makes the placement and claims processes much smoother.”

“We are delighted to unite insurers in a partnership that provides much needed capacity and simplicity. The initiative will provide brokers and clients with market-leading capacity at a time when the need for such coverage is significant and growing,” said Liberty Specialty Markets’ Underwriting Manager - Marine Cargo, Chris Hicks.
