Turbine manufacturer Fuhrländer was one of the sponsors of a football match between German champion club Borussia Dortmund and a team of top players from around the world including Paolo Sergio, Ze Roberto and Mario Jardel, in June. The match, watched by 15,000 people, was organised by a German Christian organisation, "Sportsmen call on Sportsmen." The match proceeds, EUR 95,000, have been donated to a street project for children in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Fuhrländer says its contribution "reflects its efforts in the same direction." The company is planning to build a manufacturing facility in Brazil "where in coming years young people can be trained and have the chance of a career in wind energy," says company head Joachim Fuhrländer.
