Strong partners support Frankfurt Foundation for Children with Cancer with charging solution
Doing good together: Chargemaker GmbH, a joint venture of Mainova AG and the Dussmann Group, installed a charging solution for the Frankfurt Foundation for Children with Cancer together with Dussmann Mobility Services and the gardening and landscaping company Green World. A charging station with a total of 22 kilowatts of power was built in the car park in front of the foundation’s research building. In future, electric cars can be charged there at two charging points, for example during a visit. The Foundation also uses the facility for its own electric car.
All project participants of this unique measure supported the foundation free of charge. Chargemaker participated with the charging station including accessories and corresponding charging services. The cable installation, technical assembly and commissioning were carried out by the specialist Dussmann Mobility Services. Green World, a gardening and landscaping company based in Frankfurt, provided the civil engineering.
Dr. Jürgen Vogt, Chairman of the Board and co-founder of the Frankfurt Foundation for Children with Cancer, said: “Since the foundation was established more than 25 years ago, we have pursued one goal: to continuously advance research in the field of childhood and adolescent cancer. In recent years, this has helped to reduce the mortality rate from childhood cancer. Of the more than 2,200 children and adolescents who develop cancer in Germany every year, 80% can now be cured. Of course, environmental awareness and sustainability also play an important role in our actions – the development of electric mobility is a logical building block for us. We would like to thank Mainova AG – the long-standing sponsors of our research work – as well as Chargemaker, Dussmann Mobility Services and Green World for their generous support in making this a reality.”
“Our parent company Mainova and the Foundation for Children with Cancer have a long-standing partnership. Therefore, in this particular case, it was natural for us to support the project with our partners from the region. We are pleased to be able to contribute to the valuable work of the foundation in this way,” emphasised Chargemaker Managing Director Björn Dethlefsen in connection with the charity action.
Oliver Bührer, Managing Director of Green World, said: “When, as here, a strong team works hand in hand, a lot can be achieved. We were happy to help implement the project with the partners.”
