Adapting to ensure a continuation of service during COVID-19

Wednesday 20th May 2020


As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect businesses and individuals globally, like everyone, we’ve been adapting as an organisation to ensure that we can continue to deliver important services to our valued customers, minimising the impact on their operations and projects.  

We continue to follow UK and local Government guidelines as well as public health advice as appropriate and in the case of specific ongoing live projects, our teams continue to maintain regular direct communications with our customers.  

With lockdown measures still being widely enforced across the globe, and many industries adapting to remote working solutions, connectivity and power are increasingly critical commodities. We say a huge thank you to our teams across the world, many working around the clock to keep us all connected, with a continuation of these essential infrastructures.  

The health, safety and wellbeing of our team members, clients aboard our vessels, those in our global offices and homeworkers is always our number one priority. Having successfully introduced a robust but flexible policy supporting all employees who are able to work from home, we are also looking to the future and making plans for a ‘new normal’, putting additional measures in place. For some of our employees, home working has not been possible due to the nature of their roles, and many have been identified as key workers. In these instances, we now work to increased health and safety measures across all our sites and vessels to ensure they were operating, and continue to operate, in accordance with the highest possible hygiene standards and adhere to ongoing Government guidelines in both the UK and elsewhere across the globe as they evolve. 

COVID-19 test kits are being used onboard vessels, isolations periods are being enforced, shore leave has been restricted and crew change rotations updated to minimise risk as far as possible and keep those onboard our ships globally safe and well.  

We are committed to providing an uninterrupted service to all clients and are available via the normal communication channels should you have any questions or concerns.
