Sponsorship

Tropical Power Limited Coast 2 Coast Race

As a company that is all about power (the rental, sales and service of generators), Tropical Power has, since 2006, partnered with Eco Adventures Limited as the title sponsor of the Coast 2 Coast Multi-Sport Experience (www.trinidadcoast2coast.com) – an annual two-day stage race that takes participants from Toco to Chaguaramas by running, cycling and paddling their way over 170 km of beautiful terrain. Our support of this amazing race has helped create an increased awareness and appreciation of the newest and perhaps most challenging sport to hit the region. One of the event’s regular participants was even presented with the Express Individual of the Year Award for 2007 – proof positive that this sport is changing lives!

Country Boys Tassa Group

Tassa is as Trinbagonian as a coconut water around the Savannah and Tropical Power got the pick of the bunch! The company has been sponsoring The Country Boys Tassa Group since 2005 and their rhythmic and energetic drumming makes any function that much more memorable! We are proud to play our part in keeping alive the enduring legacy of such a rich cultural tradition.

 

Lara Brothers Parang Group

The Lara Brothers are practically synonymous with sweet parang music! Just those two little words bring to mind the Christmas season and the merrymaking that goes along with it. With a musical history that dates back to the 1940s, the group proudly flies the flag of traditional parang – and Tropical Power counts itself privileged to be able to lend its support to such popular and enduring musical icons. We look forward to being part of Lara Brothers’ continued evolution.

Belmont Freetown Cultural Art
& Folk Performing Company


As the main supporter of the Belmont Freetown Cultural Arts and Folk Performing Company, Tropical Power has sent the group to twice represent Trinidad and Tobago at the Brouhaha International Street Festival (http://brouhaha.demo.nmspace.net/site/home) in Liverpool, England, which develops and delivers arts outreach projects and cultural learning programmes internationally. We are a strong believer in the transformative power of the arts and are proud of how well Belmont Freetown has brought the culture of Trinidad and Tobago to the world.

 

Simple Song Steel Orchestra

Tropical Power has been instrumental in the reconstruction and continued support of the Simple Song Steel Orchestra pan theatre at Pinto Road, Arima. Involvement in an endeavour that promotes our national instrument is important to us, but Simple Song is a special story: while still very much a small band – and a young one – compared with the more recognized names in pan music, the group’s strength lies in its strong sense of community, and the fact that a large percentage of its musicians are youngsters, which means that the love for pan music – and the skill it takes to play it – are being passed on from generation to generation.

 

Tropical Power 323’ Rally Car

Speaking of power, April 1, 2007 saw Tropical Power revving up its engines and competing for the first time in rally car racing! The company-sponsored 323 GT Turbo vehicle, which boasts 200+ horsepower, competes in the 2-Wheel Drive Class and has done quite well on the circuit, placing third overall in its class. The driver, Ansel Ali, was also awarded the honour of 2007’s 2WD Rookie of the Year! We have been so invigorated by this sport that we will soon be sponsoring another car, to be driven by Tropical Power director Robert Cadiz.

 

BGTT Energy Challenge

The BG T&T Energy Challenge (www.bgttenergychallenge.com) is a hugely challenging, wildly successful charitable event in which companies that work in the energy sector complete a series of activities (which have been known to include building rafts and hiking some of the island’s most treacherous trails) in order to raise money for disbursement to local charities throughout Trinidad and Tobago. Tropical Power has been one of those companies to take up the challenge and we’ve had a lot of fun in the process – in fact, our organisation was the 3rd largest financial contributor for the 2006 event and our team was the first to cross the finish line in both 2005 and 2006!
