FleetMon supports young talents

in Updates, Events, Sponsoring by

In winter 2020, JAKOTA Cruise Systems | FleetMon called out a Charity Week. Within this week, our employees could submit local societies and social initiatives for FleetMon to support and donate money to. A total amount of 5,000€ in donations was available to be distributed among the submitted suggestions. For us, it was essential to support either a maritime association or make a difference in our immediate local area. One of the initiatives we decided to give money to is the “Deutschlandstipendium” (“Germany scholarship”). We agreed to finance two “Germany scholarships”. Since 2011, the “Deutschlandstipendium” has been promoting students and newcomers who are expected to perform well in their studies and at work. They receive 300 euros per month – half from the federal government and half from private donors. This alliance of civil society engagement and state funding is what makes the “Germany Scholarship” so unique.

Botha will be the first person to attempt this Trans-Atlantic crossing alone

Capetonian, Zirk Botha, will depart on his 7000km solo Trans-Atlantic row from Cape Town to Rio de Janeiro, on Saturday 5 December 2020, leaving from Granger Bay Marina, at 09:00. Botha will be the first person to attempt this Trans-Atlantic crossing alone.

The 59 year-old Botha is undertaking the extreme challenge in support of the environment and sustainable development. The crossing requires him to row completely unassisted for approximately 100 days, over approximately 7000kms (3800 Nautical Miles) in often treacherous weather conditions.

“I will have no supporting safety boat, and I can expect to experience large waves and swells, not to mention the threat of numerous tanker and other large vessels bearing down on me as I move through the shipping lanes.”

FleetMon raising awareness of marine pollution through sponsorship of documentary project

in Research, Sponsoring by

In October 2019 a German producer and environmental activist turned to us in need of support for a documentary project. Together with his team, he examines if trash of German rivers could contribute to coastal pollution of the Lofoten, a group of islands in the north of Norway. The idea is to build buoys equipped with GPS devices and track their journey to demonstrate the flow of German plastics.

 

FleetMon values curiosity and ingenuity! We support the project team by sponsoring the first batch of GPS devices for free.

 

The devices will be placed inside customized buoys. The buoys are made of sustainable or recycled material to start their journey in the major German river Elbe to simulate how German trash might move.
