RanMarine’s Partnerships division was established to meet the growing demand for donor-driven Autonomous Surface Vessel (ASV) placement and subscriptions, assisting waterbody owners and managers with limited financial and operational resources.

RanMarine can facilitate one-on-one or large-scale, sponsor-funded ASV deployments by leveraging a multi-sector stakeholder network that includes Intergovernmental Organisations, NGOs, Producer Responsibility Organisations (PROs), Governments, high-net-worth individuals, SMEs, and multinational corporations.

Recipients of donor-driven placements often face both financial and operational limitations in the day-to-day use of ASVs. Consequently, RanMarine provides additional services such as project management, operational support, marketing, stakeholder management, mission reporting, waste disposal, and recycling.

Historically, many donor-driven placements have been realized through government grants and marketing partnerships. RanMarine has extensive experience in applying for and securing Government Grants globally. These grants often align with the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly SDG 6) Clean Water and Sanitation, and SDG 14) Life Below Water, which are key to RanMarine’s mission. Additionally, SDGs 8) Decent Work and Economic Growth, 11) Sustainable Cities and Communities, 13) Climate Action, and 17) Partnership for the Goals, also inform RanMarine’s initiatives.

Marketing Partnerships offer commercial enterprises the chance to engage in community-driven environmental projects while fulfilling CSR and ESG reporting requirements. Corporate partners receive flexible sponsorship options, tiered marketing and branding deliverables, and monthly mission reports detailing environmental impact insights, waste removal analytics, and water quality data.

RanMarine recently launched the "Adopt a Shark" program in New York City, providing eco-conscious philanthropic individuals the opportunity to fund ASV deployments in community and recreational waterbodies. Expansion of this program is being explored in major metropolitan areas across the USA and UK, Europe, and Australia.
