Company focuses its operations on supporting civil society during coronavirus crisis.


Printers used to manufacture protective visors

In the fight against Covid-19, Advent portfolio company INNIO has pledged to deliver and support critical infrastructure throughout the world.
INNIO is a leading producer of gas engines used on or near the site of use, or as backup to essential systems. While the pandemic persists, the company is focusing on keeping vital infrastructure running – such as ensuring the reciprocating engines are up and running to supply power to public health, safety and national security systems.
After its global crisis management team was activated at the end of January 2020, the company brought in new guidelines to protect employees at its locations in Austria, the USA and Canada – including physical distancing, separate shift working and enhanced sanitation procedures. This enabled INNIO to keep all three plants safely open.
Volunteers in Jenbach, Austria, where the company is headquartered, have provided tireless support for Covid-19 mitigation initiatives. When a Tyrolean daily newspaper made an urgent appeal for safety equipment for local medical facilities, the company quickly responded.
The Manufacturing Components Team, together with the training workshop, used 3D printers to manufacture protective visors. This equipment was donated to social and care organizations in the area including a retirement home in Jenbach; social services provider, Sozialsprengel Jenbach; children’s care home, Elisabethinum Axams; a women’s shelter in Schwaz; and nursing service, MOHI Innsbruck.
INNIO is a leading solutions provider of gas engines, power equipment, a digital platform and related services for power generation and gas compression at or near the point of use. Its portfolio of industrial gas engines generates 200kW to 10MW of power globally across a range of industries, and its service network has a presence in more than 100 countries. As well as Jenbach, Austria, the company has primary operations in Welland, Ontario, Canada, and Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA.
