GONDAN workers make several collaborations thanks to Edda Wind donation
As a result of the good relationship between both companies, during the celebration of the naming ceremony of Edda Breeze, the CEO of Edda Wind, Kenneth Walland, presented the shipyard workers with a check for 4,000 euros.
Edda Wind is one of the most innovative and reputable companies in its sector worldwide, leading the way in the adoption of clean energy and the use of efficient technological solutions to achieve the maximum reduction of the environmental impact of its operations. Astilleros GONDAN adds 7 vessels ordered by this shipowner, making a total of 18 vessels ordered for the Norwegian group Østensjø Rederi AS during almost 20 years of relationship.
Weeks after receiving the donation, once gathered in assembly, GONDAN workers altruistically decided to donate the economic contribution received from the shipowner to three organizations with which they usually collaborate: Fraternidad Association, Edes Foundation and Galbán Association.
Fraternidad is a non-profit association oriented to provide comprehensive care to people with intellectual disabilities over 16 years of age, while the Edes Foundation is also a non-profit organization that works in the rural area of the northwest of Asturias and the Mariña Lucense since 1999, offering specialized services and support that guarantee the exercise of the rights, the access to the resources and the social inclusion of each person with disabilities in the rural area. The Association of Families of Children with Cancer of the Principality of Asturias “Galbán” was created in 2001 in response to the needs of the parents of children with cancer, who receive treatment at the Maternal and Child Hospital of the Central University Hospital of Asturias (HUCA).
