At Fluence, the safety of our employees, customers, contractors, sub-contractors, suppliers and the communities in which we work has always been, and will remain, our top priority. All non-essential travel was halted on March 9, and on March 13, Fluence implemented a company-wide remote work policy that instructed all office personnel to work remotely in order to minimize the impact and likelihood of spreading the novel coronavirus through our activities at work. Our team continues to demonstrate agility and Fluence remains open for business.
Electricity is critical to every economy as it enables all other industries to operate. Without a stable electricity network, we could not combat this pandemic nor function as a modern society. Therefore, our employees, contractors, suppliers and customers on project sites continue to perform this important work to ensure all energy storage projects can come online and operate properly. We have implemented additional safety procedures at each site, including the review of appropriate personal protective equipment, an increased focus on hygiene and social distancing, to help prevent the spread of the virus. We will continue to monitor the situation at every site and will notify any impacted personnel if the situation changes.
While we do not know how long the pandemic will last, we promise to continue working with our partners to meet our mutual goals of providing safer, cleaner and critical energy to communities around the world, while prioritizing the health and safety of everyone involved.
