ELA Offshore Donates to the German Maritime SAR Service

Last year’s 150th anniversary of the German Maritime Search-and-Rescue Service (DGzRS) was the reason for ELA Container Offshore to donate the amount of €1,084.90 to the sea life guards and rescuers. The donated amount was handed over by the ELA management to volunteer service Captain Rudolf Koormann.

Managing director Hans Gatzemeier justifies the commitment of the entire team of ELA Container Offshore to the DGzRS, saying: "It is an honour, to support the hard and dangerous work of the sea life guards and rescuers."

"The crew sails out at any time of day and in any type of weather, to rescue people in danger at sea. To do this they also need help from the people on shore. This means us.

"On a daily basis, we are involved with the mobilisation of temporary offshore containers. These are used primarily on all kinds of ships, platforms or pontoons and therefore it is self-evident for the employees of ELA Containers, to support the rescue crews as a major maritime organisation,"

On behalf of all lifeguards of the rescue crew thanked the company for the support of the German Maritime Search-and-Rescue Service, Kapitän Koormann said: "Especially now in our fast paced world, it is not self-evident, that rescue crews are thought of in such an exceptional way.

Regarding this donation, head of Niedersachsen information centre Hans-Joachim Katenkamp happily says: "A donation to the rescue crews is an excellent model of commitment and demonstrates social responsibility."

Thanks to the contribution, the work of the rescue crews, which is carried out entirely by voluntary contributions and donations, will be supported and simultaneously the hard and dangerous work of lifeguards receives recognition in a special way.
