Samsung C&T to Build Green Hub in Australia
- Samsung C&T Corp. has signed an MoU to develop a mega-scale complex for renewable energy, battery storage, hydrogen production, and more in Australia. Discover the potential of this ambitious project with Samsung's commitment to 100% renewables.
Samsung C&T Corporation Engineering & Construction has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Northern Territory’s government in Australia to develop a mega-scale complex for renewable power generation, storage and hydrogen production. The plan includes the construction of renewable energy parks to produce solar photovoltaic (PV) and wind energy on a large scale, battery energy storage systems, green hydrogen production facilities and related transmission infrastructure. The output of the wind and solar farms will be used to fuel companies within the manufacturing segment transitioning to 100% renewables, including Samsung affiliates. The MoU's term will last two years and during this time a working group will be established to explore the feasibility of the project and identify suitable locations, with one potential being the Middle Arm Sustainable Development Precinct on Darwin harbour.
What Locations Are Being Considered for Samsung's Renewable Power Complex?
- Potential locations for the renewable power complex being considered include the Middle Arm Sustainable Development Precinct on Darwin harbour.
