Ukrainian development company Alterra Group has insured the construction of a new logistics center PORT2 in Lviv region. The insurer was the Ukrainian company INGO.

Alterra Group has partially insured the first part of the PORT logistics complex (PORT1), which includes the outbuilding and communications of PORT1. In addition, the construction of the second part of PORT (PORT2) was fully insured against war risks. All buildings, including finishing, communications and glass, as well as construction and installation works and materials (including the construction materials) or building elements, which were not put into operation, are insured. The amount of insurance coverage is UAH 20 million.

Under the insurance contract, INGO undertakes to indemnify for the cost of restoration of the insured objects in case of their damage or destruction as a result of military operations, including missiles or their fragments, drones, other types of armed aggression or defensive actions.

Additionally, in case of the insured event, INGO will indemnify for the costs of clearing the territory of the insured facility, firefighting costs, other measures to prevent or reduce the amount of damage, as well as payment for the services of specialists and overtime costs.

According to Dmytro Kovalchuk, founder of Alterra Group, such an insurance contract will greatly facilitate cooperation with potential clients and investors, especially during construction. If the investor sees that the facility is insured against military risks, he can be calm, because in case of damage, the insurance company will pay indemnity, and the management company will be able to restore the damaged part. Thus, the investor is financially protected and can be sure of indemnification for potential losses.

«This is the important first step for business, as it demonstrates the ability of private sector to adapt to challenges and stay ahead of the state protection mechanisms that are currently lacking,» says Dmitry Kovalchuk, «Recognizing these needs, we sought to find a strategic partner in the insurance sector. After comparing various insurers, we chose INGO, which created a specialized product for us to meet our needs on the most favorable terms. We discussed that initially the insurance would be available in the western region, but then we would expand it to other territories,» added Dmitry Kovalchuk.

Andriy Semchenko, Corporate Business Director at INGO Insurance Company, said that insurers should cover the war risks of Ukrainian businesses to help the Ukrainian economy. Even though the Ukrainian insurance market is currently without the support of Western reinsurers for war risks.

«Yes, it is difficult for domestic insurance companies to provide significant coverage limits, but we simply have no other choice - entrepreneurs must receive protection guarantees and continue to operate in Ukraine, rather than move their business abroad,» said Andriy Semchenko, «Therefore, we will continue to work on increasing our capital to offer higher liability limits and protect as many responsible companies as possible, such as Alterra Group, from war risks.»
