In case of damage to or failure of any part of the vessel’s engines or other parts which require repairs at a port en route, both the Hull and Machinery and P&I covers may be involved. Consequently, the Company must be informed, enabling them to contact both insurers. The Hull and Machinery insurer may wish to instruct a surveyor to inspect the damage. An assessment as to whether the diversion could amount to a deviation, may also be necessary, as explained in section 2.16.8 Diversion – Deviation.
