The system will warn against rainfalls, snowfalls or hail. ‘Our target for the RCA is to close 150,000 – 160,000 contracts, hence we will have 150,000 – 160,000 clients for this warning system that we will offer starting in January and that will run until 2010 when the policies expire,’ Alfred Vlcek, the Vice-President of Uniqa Insurances, stated yesterday in a press conference.

Uniqa Insurances has 600,000 clients in its total portfolio. In the first six months the company underwrote premiums worth RON 248.33 M, 8 per cent lower than the level registered in June 2008.
