The Government has advised:

The Government has published a list of critical sectors that includes the energy and water sectors in which STORTEC Engineering Ltd is active:

STORTEC Engineering Ltd is currently contracted to deliver a number of water and energy infrastructure projects across the UK. We have been advised by water authority Clients that they consider our activities critical to their responsibilities to maintain water and sewage services to the nation. In accordance with the Government guidelines we have taken the necessary steps to implement changes to working practices across our business. Those employees that are able to work from home are now working remotely. We have significantly reduced the number of personnel necessary in our head office which has enabled us to provide more workspace to those that remain, following the social distancing recommendations. Our construction activities are reviewed daily in accordance with the developing recommendations and situation. Our dedicated workforce are implementing the necessary changes to their working procedures to maintain their social distancing and enhanced hygiene practices.

The Directors of STORTEC Engineering Ltd would like to thank all of our employees who continue to give their best efforts during these difficult times. We would also like to reassure the general public that our on-going activities are necessary to deliver the essential infrastructure improvements that are still required during and beyond the pandemic situation. Our workforce are committed to carrying out their activities to the best of their abilities, working within the published guidelines, and without causing any heightened risk to any person, either colleague or general public.
