Cameto, as a company committed to the defense of Human Rights and the Global Compact, equality and sport, has participated in the celebration of the Nelson Mandela Race 2018 that this Saturday, July 22, ran through the streets of Madrid.
On the occasion of the centenary of the birth of Nelson Mandela, the Marathon Sports Group and the South African Embassy in Madrid have organized a new edition of the Nelson Mandela Race, a unique popular race in which Cameto has been one of the sponsors of the event.
The boilermaking, pipe installation and mechanical assembly company has always offered its support to the South African Embassy to promote this sporting event, which has successfully held its second edition and is destined to become one of the unmissable events for lovers of running in the Madrid summer.
Cameto’s commitment to sport
This popular race is one more example of Cameto’s commitment to sport, a commitment that goes beyond the sponsorship and sponsorship of sporting events such as the Nelson Mandela Race in Madrid or the donation of sports equipment in the areas where Cameto is present in the South African country.
In fact, among the nearly 500 participants who started from Serrano Street in Madrid, there were also workers from the engineering and boilermaking company who joined this unique sports initiative in memory of Nelson Mandela.
Apart from the opportunity to enjoy a morning of running through the streets of Madrid, those 10 kilometers of running along the main roads of Madrid served to pay tribute to the emblematic Madiba, a man who dedicated his life to defending equality, justice and Human Rights in South Africa.
Cameto in South Africa
For some years now, Cameto has been contributing its experience and capacity to the development of large energy projects in this African country. In a short time, the Spanish company has left its mark on three important solar thermal plant projects in South Africa, a market that remains on its agenda for future actions.
Cameto’s commitment to South Africa dates back to 2014, when the Spanish company began working on the construction of the Bokpoort solar thermal plant, an emblematic project that opened the doors of the South African energy sector to the Spanish company specialized in pipes, conduits and renewable energy.
Following the Bokpoort project, Cameto has also participated in the construction of the Ilanga and Kathu solar thermal plants, both located in the Northern Cape region of the country. In all of them, Cameto has contributed its good work and professionalism, completing its work in a timely manner, thereby contributing to the development of these areas and the country.”
