Hauppauge firm donates protective suits to healthcare workers

Elecnor Hawkeye, a provider of energy sector services, has donated 3,000 protective suits to healthcare workers at Stony Brook Hospital.

The Hauppauge-based company delivered the suits on Monday, April 13 in an effort to protect frontline workers in the fight against COVID-19.

The disposable protective suits are manufactured for emergency responses  and cover the entire body including hoods and booties.

A primary contractor to utilities, including PSEG-LI, National Grid and Con Ed, Elecnor Hawkeye’s services include electric overhead and underground transmission, power substations, energy distribution and natural gas infrastructure.

“Our healthcare professionals are sacrificing their own health and safety to care for and protect their patients,” Matt Braunwart, Elecnor Hawkeye’s COO, said in a company statement. “It is critical they have the appropriate gear, tools and staffing to combat this pandemic and we are happy to do our part.”
