Modelling Cargo, Cruise Ships & Pleasure Boats Risks

The marine industry is no exception to natural and man-made disasters. The industry ranges from bulk or container cargo, cruise ships, yachts and boats each with their own products, mobility, exposures and specificity of policies within the industry. Billions of dollars in economic losses across the industry as a consequence of catastrophes, such COVID-19 pandemic, have caused world-wide supply chain risks. Weather related extreme events, such as Hurricanes Irma

and Michael have destroyed cruise ships, yachts and pleasure boats, have demonstrating that the need is urgent to record the risk from the wind forces and storm surge of hurricane, tropical cyclone or typhoons.

Infinite Observations provides the ZineQx hurricane cat model that simulates, assesses and manages the potential losses in the marine pleasure industry.

Marine Vulnerability Risk Exposure Modelling

Data Driven Marine Models

Infinite Observations Marine model implicitly accounts for marine vessel damage mechanisms and mitigation strategies. There are a number of perils that pose a threat to marine vessels, such as storm surge and winds from (extra-) tropical cyclones, airborne debris impact, tsunamis from earthquakes, etc. Storm surge is the most significant threat during a hurricane for pleasure boats in marinas. Boats can become stranded on docks, rocks or the shore where they can remain for weeks after a catastrophe. Our model offers unique capabilities to realistically represent geolocation data, which is crucial when properly trying to estimate marine vessel vulnerability, exposure, risk and losses. The model serves the needs of privately owned vessels, such as fishing, or cruising and recreational boats as well as marine craft classified as commercial or professional vessels, such as cargo ships or tugboats.

Quantifying Marine Risks & Losses

To be able accurately assess and manage the risk and losses to this unique line of business, Infinite Observations has developed damage functions for sub-perils or (weighted) combinations of these sub-perils. Vulnerability of marine vessels are modelled using the relative damageability characteristics of the vessel that are factored into the (average) damage functions, which vary depending on risk and the length of input to describe the vessel, such as type, size, and age, manufactured location, codes and standards, practices, powered, sailed or moored, riggings, hull type, engine and auxiliary engines/motors, and other components, as well as cargo, contents and inventory. The importance of the actual spatial and temporal parameters cannot be overstated when determining losses in relation to localized hazards. The models can be validated in its entirety or model components can be validate independently against information and research from industry sources as well as historic events.
