Alexela as a large corporation, with great local impact, in addition to environmental initiatives, has for years considered it important to give back to society through supporting the fields of culture, sports and charity.
The Vice-President of the Alexela Group, Marti Hääl, stated that Alexela has supported sailing for its entire 30-year history since maritime culture was in the childhood upbringing of its owners. "Sailing is an excellent sport and supporting it on different levels – from children starting in the Optimist class to offshore sailing – is taken to heart at Alexela.”

Tallinn, as a seaside city and the city of the 1980 Olympic regatta, has always supported the various sailing regattas held here.
"Such events bring the attention of sports fans to both the capital and Estonia. But it is also a great recognition for the city and our sports federations, which are trusted to host such important and world-class sports events. It is also a recognition for our sports audience!" says Deputy Mayor of Tallinn Vadim Belobrovtsev.

The idea for Tactical Foodpack (TFP) came from a medic in the Estonian Special Operations Force who in his everyday work was faced with complicated conditions that put both physical and mental health to the test.
TFP team has created a product line that offers a long shelf-life with no added preservatives or additives – it’s all natural, honest, and has a home-made feel to it. Just pour hot water on the food, wait a beat, and enjoy delicious flavours straight from the pouch.
Sverre Puustusmaa, CEO of Tactical Foodpack: “Coming from the military background, I know how important is to choose the right tactics in competitive sports. Therefore, we have decided to choose a direction in our company to support tactical sports and sailing is a tactical sport undoubtedly. But in order to be successful in sailing, you also need a good motivated team. One of the motivators is definitely good food. And if you put these 2 things together - the right tactics and good food for the team, you will certainly succeed!”
Tactical Sailing needs Tactical Food!

Lined by the harbour, the Old Town and the Viru Centre shopping mall, lies the Rotermann Quarter, the official centre-point of Tallinn. Being the meeting point of three main roads, the quarter was busy as far back as the 19th century. That’s probably why an entrepreneur called Christian Abraham Rotermann found the place and founded his company there in 1829. Rotermann’s factory produced building equipment, and soon also housed a distillery, a pasta factory, and it wasn't long before Tallinn’s largest mill followed it into the neighbourhood.
The Rotermann Quarter has almost as many historically valuable buildings as the Old Town of Tallinn. The Rotermann Quarter gives visitors an extraordinary opportunity to spend quality time in quieter and smaller urban areas, discovering shops, restaurants, and wine bars fit for both everyday life and occasions that are more refined.
The Stalker’s Path (Stalkeri käik) is named after the famous Russian film ”Stalker” by Andrei Tarkovsky, filmed on this very spot back in 1979. The path is the latest and undoubtedly the most delicious part of the whole Rotermann Quarter. Many restaurants and cafés have recently opened in the old grain elevator, serving all kinds of delicacies for their hungry clients.

Karla Auto O.K. Ltd has 30 years of professional diesel engine repair experience.
Now we started to clean DPF (Diesel Particule Filter) filters. 5 years ago, in cooperation with Italian engineers, Karla Auto started developing DPF filter cleaning technology witch we call FF- Solution. Today we can proudly confirm that we have succeeded. We have cleaned over 5,000 filters and we can guarantee that the filter will be 100% clean after cleaning.
The technology we developed is environmental friendly and economical.
What is Diesel Particle Filter DPF?
Most modern diesel cars and trucks (EURO 4, EURO 5, EURO 6) are equipped with DPF filters and catalysts for exhaust gas cleaning. The main function of the catalyst is to clean the exhaust gases of harmful chemical compounds during the chemical process. The purpose of the filter (DPF) is to trap unburned soot and other solid particles (such as ash) in the exhaust. Diesel engines also use a combination of catalysts and particulate filters. Clogged DPF must not be changed anymore.
Based on our long experience, we recommend that the DPF soot filter should be serviced annually to avoid unexpected problems on the road.
