Electrical distribution

Public and private electrical distribution networks, from the power plants to the consumption points, are the lifeblood of all modern human activities.

They comprise a system of conductors (overhead lines, underground wiring, etc.), substations situated at hubs of the network, or a tree structure of conductors, protection panels, and control panels.

Decentralisation of production centres has led to the creation of smart networks or “smart grids”. These electrical networks use computing technology to adjust the flow of electricity between suppliers and consumers.

A failure affecting one of the links in the distribution chain can have significant tangible and intangible impacts on consumers.

Our loss adjusters have backgrounds in electrical engineering, and have worked in the field of electrical distribution before specialising in performing damage surveys.

They fully understand the consequences a power outage can have on business activities.

OUR LOSS ADJUSTERS

Emmanuel PINOT
Loss adjuster

In engineering school I specialised in the environmental field with the aim of working in renewable energies. For four years, I was responsible for operating large photovoltaic and cogeneration plants, and wind farms. I've bolstered my technical knowledge with a comprehensive understanding of all aspects of this field (market, players, contracts).
In 2013, I joined GM Consultant as a loss adjuster for technical and industrial risks, specialising in renewable energies. I also advise my colleagues on these issues.
I am a partner at a vineyard in the Cévennes mountain range in the south of France, which I manage as a green business.

I'm passionate about history, which drew me to the south-west of France over 25 years ago. I have always been inquisitive and had an eye for detail. My expertise in the operation of electrical installations and electrotechnical equipment sparked my interest in investigating the causes of fires. In charge of the south-west region, I lead a team of 10 loss adjusters spread out between Bordeaux, Toulouse, and Bayonne.

After graduating from an engineering school with a degree in environmental and industrial engineering, I specialised in the field of renewable energy.
I worked on photovoltaics as a research engineer for 5 years, then joined GM Consultant in 2015 to perform damage surveys and investigate liability in the field of renewable energy. I travel all over France to process cases involving all forms of alternative energy generation: wind, hydroelectric, photovoltaic, biomass, and cogeneration.

After graduating with an engineering degree, I began my career performing damage surveys, as well as project management and management works in the fields of energy and transport for nearly 20 years.
Returning to damage surveys with GM Consultant in 2014, I take a pragmatic approach to handling public liability cases in the industrial, construction, and energy fields, particularly when the management of a project is called into question. I also appraise damages covered under Contractors' All Risks insurance policies.

Pierre MONSALLUT
Loss adjuster

An engineer by training, for 27 years I worked in the research, design, production, marketing, installation, and service of scientific instruments. Since 2012 I've worked as a loss adjuster for GM Consultant, where I conduct scientific investigations to find the origins of claims and to establish or rule out liability. I conduct rigorous investigations into the causes of industrial and scientific equipment malfunctions, calling on my knowledge of electronics, electronic engineering, physics, optics, lasers and mechanics, and also work on cases involving the energy sector. I also help investigate how fires are caused . I am keen on clockmaking and scale modelling, and attach particular interest in their R&D and restoration.
