Wind turbines are a well established technology in the north of England and southern Scotland, where there are high wind speeds for much of the year. Investing in a turbine either as a self-funded project, a joint venture or a lease option can offer the landowner financial security for 20 years, enabling you to plan for future investment or succession.
Working alongside our sister company (see below) H&H Insurance Brokers has experience of insuring wind turbines. Our onshore wind farm insurance covers are designed to meet the unique risk exposures which wind turbines present ie:
– Windstorm of lightning damage to blades
– Failure of gearbox or generator
– Fire or explosion in the transformer
– Failure of windings
In addition, our operational risks insurance will cover for breakdown, loss of revenue and even terrorism.
We are able to provide cover to encompass both the the construction and operational phases for wind energy risks, so please contact our team for a free ‘no obligation’ quotation by completing our enquiry form or alternatively email us and we will respond directly.

A farmer’s focus is on the efficient production of crop products and livestock, however, with so many variables involved – animal behaviour, machinery, the human factor, and of course, the weather – it is perhaps not surprising that the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) considers farming a high risk area.
