AFC Energy has implemented a number of UK Government recommendations, such as avoiding non-essential travel and working from home where practical, in a bid to minimise the impact of coronavirus (Covid-19) on its business.
The UK company said it is also in regular contact with its parters and supply chain including key industrial partners such as Industrie De Nora headquartered in Italy, regarding their own preparedness for the impact of the Covid-19 virus and are reassured by the actions they have in place to mitigate against the long term effect of localised business disruption.
In spite of these challenging circumstances and to the extent within AFC Energy’s control, the company said it is seeking to maintain momentum following the successful launch and interest received for its H-PowerTM systems over recent months and is continuing to advance its commercial pipeline.
AFC Energy will continue to monitor UK Government advice in regard to coronavirus.
Adam Bond, CEO of AFC Energy, said, “The consequential impact of Covid-19 at this stage is impossible to fully predict, however, we are taking all actions to ensure the effect of any delays on manufacturing and system deployment are mitigated to the greatest extent possible.”
“These are uncertain times and present material uncertainty and challenges for our families, friends and acquaintances.”
“I’m very thankful and proud of the commitment our staff have shown in pulling together at this time to continue our recent successes and wish all our friends and family safety over the coming weeks and months.”
