Statement from HESC Project Partners on the COVID-19 situation

COVID-19 is a once-in-a-century pandemic challenge, affecting communities and businesses around the world.  The health and safety of our staff, contractors and communities are our primary concern.

As this situation continues to develop, the HESC Project is committed to putting in place measures to ensure that the risks to our staff, contractors, and stakeholders of contracting or transmitting the virus are carefully managed and, to the fullest possible extent, avoided.

All of our workplaces including our construction sites in Hastings and the Latrobe Valley are following the Australian and Victorian governments’ guidelines and regulations for hygiene, social distancing, public gathering restrictions and self-isolation.

The Hastings and Latrobe Valley construction sites have put in place rigorous processes to manage access and regulate human conduct in those sites. We continue to monitor developments and any updates to governments’ guidelines, and are committed to following government advice and adapting our measures accordingly.

As always, we will endeavour to communicate early and transparently to all our stakeholders any potential, relevant impact stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic on the HESC Project.

The HESC Project Partners acknowledge the significant efforts all governments, health workers, individuals and organisations are undertaking to combat this health crisis. We are grateful for everyone’s efforts and hope that you all stay safe during this difficult time.

We remain fully committed to navigating through these challenging times with resilience and continue working to our ambitious, mutual hydrogen vision.
