Loss of Profit Assessment Wood Panel Manufacturer


A manufacturer in the wood panel sector suffered lost production when its power plant failed. The manufacturer received payments from its insurer in respect of a business interruption claim and the insurer initiated the lost profits following a disruption of power supply.

Our Role

Secretariat professionals were appointed to provide expert services on behalf of the Respondent in the LCIA Arbitration to assess the business interruption lost profits derived from the loss of power, net of any mitigation.


We carried out a detailed analysis of the opposing expert’s analysis of lost production, increased energy costs and ensuing lost profits and costs of mitigation. Finding the Claimant’s model to be unreliable and cumbersome we produced our own model and made our own assessment of the losses suffered as a result of the interruption to self-generated power.
