PolArctic is an oceanographic and data science company with a focus on creating products for the Arctic. The company identifies and creates solutions to business and policy questions about the Arctic through the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques, allowing customers to plan for future Arctic maritime activities. 

Lab activity

Primary way aimed to improve insurance processes and tools whilst in the Accelerator: New sources of risk insight - data or models  

PolArctic gained access to a range of mentors, helping to fine-tune the organisation’s offering. PolArctic was then able to present its solutions to the Lloyd's Market Association Navigating Limits Ice committee, which led to an opportunity for a trial with the committee.  

As maritime traffic intensifies in the Arctic, the potential for accidents and damages increases, exposing reinsurers to greater risk as ship fleets could be frozen into a region. By incorporating PolArctic's data, reinsurers can accurately assess the potential exposure and losses associated with the increased shipping activities across a portfolio.
