Machinery Breakdown Insurance policy broadly indemnifies the insured against the cost of repairing or replacing the insuredindustrial or electronic equipment to its original state as a result of unforeseen internal or external damage. Although your equipment is under warranties and service contracts which do provide some protection, they do not cover many of the common causes of equipment breakdowns such as damages due to operator error nor will they pay for spoilage and damage to surrounding property or extra expenses to restore operations. This policy does cover all these risks for you. Cover is also valid when the machinery is at rest or in the process of dismantling, cleaning, overhauling or during subsequent re-erection at the same premises.
