The coronavirus pandemic concerns us all. It is the global societal challenge. Together, we must do everything within our power to contain the spread of the coronavirus.
Now more than ever, power production, as part of the critical infrastructure, is of the utmost importance. We at RWE are doing all we can to maintain power production in our plants and thus contribute to security of supply.
As an energy company, the vast majority of our employees work in our power plants and opencast mines. They are urgently needed to ensure continued energy production and they deserve our special recognition.
RWE has implemented key preventative measures for our workforce. Contingency and pandemic plans have also been put into action and are being constantly updated.
By adhering to the highest standards of hygiene and other safety measures such as splitting teams and shifts, we aim to protect our employees, thereby ensuring continued production in our plants.
Wherever possible, our employees are encouraged to work from home.
