In case the supplier has arranged transit insurance upto the site, a Storage cum erection policy can be issued limiting coverage to risks that the project is exposed to at the site only. In case the policy period exceeds 12 months, the premium can be paid in quarterly instalments with the first instalment being more by 5% and the last instalment being paid 6 months before expiry of the policy. For project value exceeding Rs.1500crs, specially designed policies are available.

The basic policy will pay only as per the original cost and prices. However escalation clause can be opted for, under which escalation upto 50%, can be selected to take care of such increase in prices during the policy period. The sum insured shall be adjustable on completion of the erection, on the basis of actual values incurred by the insured in respect of freights, handling charges, customs dues, cost of erection etc. and premium adjusted accordingly. The sum insured under section II should represent the per accident limit (the maximum legal liability that may fall on the insured as a result of an accident in the insurer's site).

If a part of the plant or one or several machines are tested and put into the operation, the coverage under the policy for that particular part of the plant or machine will cease, whereas the coverage will continue for the remaining parts which are not yet ready. In case approval of the plant or any part thereof is not given by the concerned authorities even after expiry of 4weeks of trial running, the policy can be extended and the extra premium to be arranged beforehand.
