Essar continue proud partnership with TRFC!

15 June 2022

Tranmere Rovers are delighted to announce that Essar will continue their partnership with the Club for the forthcoming season, and will be proudly displayed on the front of the new fan-designed first team shirts, which will be revealed for the first time at 5pm on 16th June.

Essar owns and operates the storage tankers at Tranmere and the refinery in Ellesmere Port which have been part of our community for over 60 years.  Now, they’re leading the energy transition by playing a major role in the development of hydrogen as an alternative fuel source. 

The company is investing in the UK’s first low carbon hydrogen production hub, which will provide clean energy to for businesses, transport and homes in the North West.  The investment in the new hydrogen technology is part of our region’s HyNet initiative, the UK’s leading industrial decarbonisation cluster.  This will bring huge benefits to the North West and cements Essar’s long term commitment to our community and the region.

Tranmere Chairman, Mark Palios said “I am delighted that Essar will again be our principal sponsor, because over recent years we have established a great partnership which goes far beyond simple advertising.  Essar have embraced many of the community projects we have launched, often with very little fanfare, at their request.  This included funding the provision of food parcels at the height of the Covid lockdown and supporting the Super White Christmas appeal, ensuring that local children from financially struggling backgrounds get to enjoy the kind of Christmas that many of us take for granted.  I would like to thank them for their magnificent support over a number of years, and particularly during the difficult Covid period, and I look forward to continuing to work with them for the coming season”.

Deepak Maheshwari , CEO of Essar Oil UK, said “We’re proud to be supporting Tranmere Rovers again this year.   Our partnership provides us with the opportunity to work closely with the Club and to partner with them on their wide range of projects that really deliver for the local community.  We’re also grateful to the Club for the special opportunities they provide for our colleagues to take part in events at Prenton Park. We wish the team all the best for the 2022/23 season.”
