ESVAGT takes the threat of spreading Covid-19 seriously and we do our outmost to limit exposure by following the guidelines and instructions given by the jurisdictions in the countries where we operate.

Some direct precautions include implementation of social distancing, telework (working from home) for our onshore staff except for a few critical functions, and introduction of alternative crew change patterns and traveling arrangements for our offshore crews to limit personal contact during transit.

As ESVAGT plays an important role in providing safety critical services to the energy sector, we will strive to maintain our operations intact throughout the challenging period with minimum disturbance to our customers and their clients.

Safety has always been the fundamental key value in ESVAGT, and safety will without questioning also be our top priority in these challenging times.

Therefore, everybody at ESVAGT is urged to follow the guidelines and instructions given by the authorities and do their outmost to combat the spreading of Covid-19.
