Reduce Exposure with Risk Engineering

In power generation, proactively managing risk exposure is critical. Wind farms, mines, power plants, utility stations, and other power generation facilities are complex. The risk exposures are large, and accidents are expensive. In times of decarbonization and a changing supply chain additional the risks are even more pronounced.

Risks include technology and design risks, project execution and quality risks, operation & maintenance, obsolete parts and difficult repairs, safety risks, market disruption and regulatory changes.

Risk engineering from TÜV SÜD GRC can help you identify risks like fire and equipment failure while keeping you compliant with industry standards. We assess your risk of natural hazards like earthquakes and windstorms. Our insurance asset valuation team helps determine property values and minimizes the risk of underinsurance.

In the power generation industry, TÜV SÜD GRC has delivered the following results:

  • $137.7 billion in loss estimate reduction for our clients since 2003 
  • 29,854 recommendations to improve risk management processes since 2003 
  • 13,425 facility inspections since 2008

Accurate Property Values: Accurate values are critical to finding the right insurance program. Due to the power generation industry’s unique needs, our experts can provide specific and customized guidance about equipment and occupancies.

Natural Hazards Analysis: Some facilities are in areas with known windstorm, earthquake, or flood exposures. TÜV SÜD GRC can help identify and quantify those risks, provide detailed analysis of the exposures, and help you launch meaningful mitigation solutions.

Electrical Supply and Reliability: We have electrical specialists with the expertise to assist clients with improvements to electrical supply reliability. We also conduct equipment risk assessments for asset management. We even provide owner’s engineering services on the area of “cabling”/grid connection for wind parks.

Electrical Safety: Training courses are available on electrical energy, shock, and arc-flash hazard boundaries and personal protective equipment (PPE). We help you stay NFPA 70E-compliant. We are also a Notified Body under applicable directives of the European Union (EU) and can provide you with CE Marking. In the U.S. we are an accredited NRTL certification provider.

Fire Protection Engineering: Managing fire and explosion risks is critical for protecting personnel, facility assets, supply chain, and market share. Our engineers create fire protection programs tailored to your facilities, safety protocols, employees, and product compliance needs.

Smart Factories: Automation, smart robots, machine learning, additive manufacturing, and Internet of Things (IoT) are all contributing to industrial spaces where physical and digital production are converging. While these innovations can invite new risks such as cyber threats, implementing the Smart Industry Readiness Index serves as a guide for companies looking to start their digital transformation.

Business Continuity Planning: Identify business interruption risk, quantifying the potential impact to your company and develop mitigation strategies for potential problems.
