Our VIRTUE GUARD product will allow our Insured’s covered underground storage tanks to comply with Federal and State UST Environmental Financial Responsibility requirements. Defense coverage exists outside the limits of liability required for Underground Storage Tank Insurance. Liability from aboveground storage tanks or location specific environmental liabilities may also be transferred to this policy, under a completely separate limit of liability, which will not reduce the required coverage limit needed for UST compliance.
Environmental coverage can be written over or around any State Environmental Fund and will not jeopardize any State’s environmental funding mechanism. This insurance product is worthy of consideration by any commercial property owner, including all petroleum marketers and non-marketers.
Excess Environmental Liability coverage may also be offered above other qualified Insurance Companies for these exposures.
Moreover, the Virtue Guard Program offers:
- One Limit of Liability for covered UST releases
- A separate limit of liability for UST related defense costs
- An option 3rd limit of liability for Environmental Releases other than from UST’s
- Business Interruption Coverage for UST’s less than 15 years old
- Coverage for investigative costs to confirm the source of a release
- An automatic 180 day extended reporting period for UST claims
- Coverage for loading and unloading operations
- A 24-hour claim reporting hotline
Plus insureds have the advantage of purchasing an extended 36-month reporting period after the policy expires.
