Dear Global Wind Service partner,
As one of our truly valued partners we are sending you this short letter. As her Majesty the Queen of Denmark said on national TV, we have a dangerous guest. Not only in Denmark, but in most countries around the world COVID-19 is spreading. It has become a global pandemic, that impacts all our lives. The situation calls for actions from all governments, companies and individuals. We must all adapt to the situation with changed behavior, processes and ways of working.
Drastic measures have been taken by governments during the last week. Measures with global and local impact on many if not all businesses and citizens. But measures that are needed! We have seen limitations on crossing borders and entering countries, which is not your home country. Something that complicate the work for travel technicians.
But like all our clients and partners we see that the renewable and energy industry is a critical construction industry and part of bringing clean energy to the society and people globally. Therefore, we have also seen a dedicated ambition from our clients and partners to continue construction and service work on wind parks around the world. Something we are doing all in our effort to fulfill together with you.
In Global Wind Service we stay guided by our core values; be safe, take responsibility, act flexible and focus on people.
Since the establishment of Global Wind Service in 2008, we have always taken responsibility for our work and our employees, and in this extraordinary situation, we more than ever must act flexible and help each other. This way we can keep our employees and partners safe while securing progress on projects. Something which is critical for the economy and for the security of people’s jobs. For us this is focus on people.
We take this situation very seriously and will always be relentlessly committed to put the safety of our employees and partners first. People must be safe. Therefore, we constantly monitor the situation project by project. We take and will take necessary actions to prevent further spread of the virus while we still aim to fulfil our responsibility to protect both your and our businesses.
Whether you are a client, supplier or close business partner, I want to personally reassure you, that we will do our outmost to continue our support to you in this very challenging situation. I am confident that we will overcome the COVID-19 crisis together and stand even stronger and closer on the other side!
Michael Høj Olsen CEO of Global Wind Service
