case study example

Hydroelectric power company in East Asia

Learn how a parametric cover could cover a hydroelectric power company in East Asia:


A large hydroelectric power company in East Asia was exposed to the risk of decreased power generation due to low water levels. However, such financial losses were excluded from their insurance program, thus the client was left with an uncovered revenue gap of $6M in recent years, impacting their profit margins and financial goals. 


With a parametric cover, the client would receive a cover that is triggered when the daily river flow falls to critical levels, resulting in a reduced power generation capacity of 20% or more. 


At the end of the risk period, the client would be swiftly paid a corresponding indemnity for each day that the water level fell below the predefined power generation index, stabilizing their revenue and retaining their profit margins.
