Triton Knoll status update - Covid-19
As a responsible employer, our top priority is to ensure that all of our staff, contractors and members of the public can stay safe and well throughout this unprecedented time.
We have already stopped all non-critical activities and reduced others, where they cannot be done remotely, and where it is simply not possible to meet Government guidance and our own commitment to protecting our staff’s safety and welfare.
Some activities on this nationally significant energy infrastructure project are however critical and cannot be undertaken remotely, for example, the safe commissioning of our onshore assets in line with national grid timelines. These works are continuing under the most stringent conditions to protect the safety of our teams and the public, with an emphasis on works that enable clear segregation of personnel and maintaining an appropriate distance.
We have also implemented measures such as medical screening and checks of personnel before starting work or entering a site, while keeping all of these measures frequently under review.
