As the COVID-19 virus affects much of the world, Fincantieri’s Wisconsin shipyards are continuing their work in support of America’s infrastructure. The Departments of Defense and Homeland Security and the Navy have told Fincantieri leaders that their contracted work is vital to the nation’s economic and national security, so there is an expectation of continued operations.
Fincantieri leaders are reinforcing prevention efforts to protect employees, such as multiple daily cleanings of high-traffic areas, social distancing, prohibiting nearly all travel, detailed screening of all visitors and deliveries, and using remote and shift work when possible.
“We want all of our men and women, their families, and our suppliers and partners to be mindful of guidance from the CDC and state health authorities as to how to protect themselves, and we will continue to treat this with the great diligence,” said Dario Deste, CEO of Fincantieri Marine Group. “We will take every precaution as we uphold our obligation to our commercial, military and government leaders.”
