Maintaining operations during the Coronavirus outbreak

We follow the corona situation closely and do everything possible to maintain the normal operation. So far we have no delays in production or deliveries. Where onsite service is impossible due to travel restrictions, we do remote service support for connected vessels in operation.

Corvus Energy has implemented precautionary measures in the workplace to prevent further spread of the coronavirus and to protect our employees.

– We are following this serious situation closely, and we are continuously adhering to the advice given by the health authorities, says Geir Bjørkeli, CEO of Corvus Energy.

Based on the currently available information, we have implemented measures in all ways that we can to prevent further spread of the coronavirus. The safety and well-being of our customers and employees are always our top priority.

We limit the activity in the administration buildings in Bergen and in Vancouver to a minimum and all positions that can work from home are moved to home office. Please note that we do not accept external visitors to our office locations or personal meetings with any of our employees.

We continue working like before – all departments are available via normal emails and phone numbers and we are available for meetings on skype and teams instead of personal meetings.

Manufacturing is running as scheduled; we have the needed supply of parts and components and we are doing operational and HSE measures to safeguard that we do not take any chances.

– Extra hygiene measures have been implemented, and those working in the workshop will always keep a safe distance to each other.

Both Norway and Canada have adopted comprehensive measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19. No measures are currently being introduced that indicate the closure or cessation of private activity like ours, with the exception of some travel restrictions.

In addition to the safety and well-being of our customers and employees, we prioritize support to sailing vessels. With the batteries being connected, our service engineers are supporting the sailing vessel remotely.
