Failure of Ancillary Equipment

When equipment, such as the steam driven main boiler feed pump fails, losses are quickly mitigated through the utilisation of electric start and standby pumps.  However using these may well result in a loss of sold output and impact on efficiency.  The electric pumps require significant energy to operate, increasing station load and reducing that available to sell. Furthermore efficiency is impacted as the preheat facility and the condensate return system are lost

The business interruption loss is therefore not at 100%, consequently a time deductible will not have the same financial impact and may only exclude from cover a period of derate.
