David Palumbo, Chief Executive Officer of EQTEC, said: ” We continue to monitor and adhere to the official guidance regarding COVID-19.
It is very hard to predict the full impact of COVID-19 at this stage, however, we are taking all possible actions to manage and mitigate this situation.
We have implemented measures to safeguard employee and customer health, as well as maintaining operations during this uncertain time. We are grateful to our staff, partners and wider stakeholders for the commitment and resilience they have already shown, and I believe that our ties will be even stronger once this crisis is behind us.”
EQTEC plc (AIM: EQT), the technology solution company for advanced gasification in waste to energy projects, provides an update on how the Company is managing and responding to the current global health situation and the rapidly evolving circumstances surrounding the spread of COVID-19 .
The safety of our staff, their families, our customers and partners are the priority for EQTEC. With offices in the UK, Spain and Ireland, the impact of COVID-19 and government recommendations varies in each location. Accordingly, we continue to assess the risks and adapt our plans and actions in consultation with our local stakeholders.
We have already implemented a number of government recommendations, including those surrounding the avoidance of non-essential travel and working from home where practical. Our technical and corporate staff are set up for remote working and we expect no reduction in our design and engineering capability, and the delivery of these services to any of our projects.
We are also in regular contact with our key partners and suppliers regarding their own preparedness for the impact of the COVID-19 virus and are reassured by the actions they have put in place to mitigate against the long term effect of localised business disruption.
Given the uncertainty and rapidly changing nature of the situation, the Company is working to protect its cash resources by pro-actively managing its capital expenditure and working capital, as well as identifying opportunities for expenditure savings that will not impact on the long-term success of the Company.
Despite the current challenging circumstances, we are seeking to maintain momentum following the increase in commercial enquires and the addition of strategic partnerships in our core geographies. We are continuing to advance our commercial pipeline in the US and more recently in Greece, as well as advancing discussions with parties that have expressed interest in EQTEC becoming their advanced gasification technology partner.
Green economy provisions featured heavily, in the recent Budget from the UK Chancellor, with multi-million-pound spending pots promised for low-carbon transport and renewable energy. These announcements continue to affirm the opportunities in the market for proven technology solutions, such as EQTEC’s advanced gasification, which will be essential to the new infrastructure required for energy transition. Whilst it is very hard to predict the full impact of COVID-19 on our business at this stage, we believe we are well placed to capitalise on this new reality once the adversity of the current situation reduces.
