Our insurance company client was involved in a claim arising from the failure of a steam turbine which resulted in loss of generation and major component replacement. We determined the root cause of the failure and our expert technical advice was utilized throughout a dispute over the root cause, both prior and during the court case. Our expertise covered materials, cycle chemistry, steam turbine and stress analysis. Following our input, the claim against our client was halved in value.
The failure of relay contacts led to an inadvertent circuit breaker closure and severe damage to a generator rotor. On behalf of our insurance company client we analyzed the processes and decisions leading up to the incident to identify at which stage in the project the fault had occurred. A different insurance company was responsible for claims relevant to this stage. Our client used our findings to resolve a dispute with the other insurers over liability for the fault. Our client avoided payment of a significant warranty claim.
