Advanced solar technology systems have been developed in Canada, Israel, USA, Germany and Australia with engineering design and systems development in Malaysia, Philippines, South Africa and Singapore. Robotics systems and electronic design and development in the EU. The thin-film coatings and reflective substrate technology and systems have been developed in South America. The SEH is truly an international project from new technology houses and traditional suppliers to the power generation and transmission markets of the world since 1901.
The meeting of minds and technologies from around the globe places the SEH technology 20 years ahead of the rest of the world's solar systems technologies. By 2013/14 Australia will have a base-load 1,500MW solar power generation facility that will become the benchmark for solar power generation. By 2018 SEH will add another 1,500MW through the establishment of a new generation of molten salt Binary Solar Generators to be followed closely by an additional 1,500MW installed by 2022; just at the time that gas production is expected to slow in Australia.
Current 54MW trail facilities in the Middle East, Canada and the USA are already producing efficiencies exceeding 78% on a 24/7 cycle under the worst sunlight conditions. The project team at SEH say to you "welcome to the future of solar energy"! SEH is a member of the APEG group a significant infrastructure project development and finance group based in Asia/Pacific with a total infrastructure portfolio exceeding $24BIL.
The project life is expected to span 12 years and deliver a base load capability in excess of 4,500MW; sufficient power generation to accommodate energy demand growth over the next 40 years and reduce the cost of energy to Australian exporters by 18% by reducing their energy costs significantly.
The Sunshine Energy Harvest Company (SEH) is a company built on more than 10 years of technological advancement in solar energy systems.
This Solar Energy project will employ approximately 2,800 people from a wide range of skills including metal fabrication, electrical and civil engineering, manufacturing, construction, asset and facilities management, ancillary services, hospitality, tourism, education and training, research, retail, environmental sciences, electrical power generation and transmission.
The SEH project will after its completion continue to engage the services of approximately 1,200 in the fields of power station maintenance, tourism, education, research and allied export industry to development projects overseas.
