✧ About

NTE Discovery Park

Located in Campbell River on the northeast coast of Vancouver Island, BC, Canada, and managed by our Canadian subsidiary New Times Discovery Limited, Discovery Park is a 1,200-acre (4.9 km²) industrial park offering industrial land parcels, buildings, and warehouses for lease.

The site features an electrical substation connected to two 138 kV transmission lines, delivering over 200MW of 100% renewable hydro energy from BC Hydro at rates as low as C$0.05/kWh. Additional facilities include a solid industrial waste landfill for hazardous substance disposal, a complementary wastewater treatment facility, a fresh water supply, and two deepwater piers for dock usage and direct ocean access.


Establishing a Sustainable Circular Ecosystem

NTE Discovery Park is currently leased to tenants in industries such as green data centers, modular construction, marine services, and steel fabrication. We are transforming Discovery Park into a green-tech hub to attract tenants aligned with our ESG mandate. The site is ideal for aquaculture, green hydrogen, and renewable natural gas projects due to its low-cost electricity and abundant ocean and freshwater supply. We are actively exploring these opportunities with support from local and federal governments.

NTE Discovery Park seeks partnerships with leading ag-tech companies in Canada and globally to provide efficient, localized food supply solutions using indoor farming technologies. The site aims to redefine agriculture by overcoming seasonal and climate constraints, reducing long supply chains, and benefiting Western Canada’s people, resources, and economy.

In addition to sustainable development, NTE Discovery Park will feature a digital transformation technology hub to support ongoing green projects and innovations. We exemplify what is possible when we include the planet in our plans.

Pilot Green Hydrogen Plant

NTE Discovery Park Ltd. and Quantum Technology Corp. will produce green hydrogen using renewable electricity. The pilot phase will generate 15 metric tons of hydrogen daily for Campbell River, Vancouver Island, and the Lower Mainland. Plans include a full-scale plant delivering green liquid hydrogen for heavy transportation. The initial 40MW phase will produce hydrogen gas and liquid, reducing CO2 emissions and allowing hydrogen to be blended with natural gas for further carbon reduction.
Construction is scheduled to start as early as the second quarter of 2025, depending on the acquisition of Development and Building Permits, with commissioning expected in the fourth quarter of 2026.
Up to 100 jobs during construction and 20 permanent jobs in Campbell River once operational.
Hydrogen will be used within a 500 km radius, benefiting local industries such as Fortis, BC Ferries, Vancouver Airport, and the trucking sector.
Phase I Details
Phase II Details
Production Rate: 50 tons/day gas and liquid hydrogen for transportation and other markets.

NTE Discovery Park Ltd. and Quantum Technology Corp. are committed to working with the First Nations on whose traditional territories the project is situated, as well as all stakeholders, to ensure that the project development benefits all parties involved.


Sustainable On-land Aquaculture

Salmon is an excellent high-protein food source, but wild stocks are under stress. One solution is on-land salmon farms. Our aquaculture facility will produce 80,000 tonnes of salmon per year, making it one of the largest on-land aquaculture facilities in the world. By leveraging an existing water supply and utilizing heat and oxygen produced by our ammonia plant, this facility significantly reduces its environmental footprint.

Bio-fuel Plant

We will convert regional wood waste and fish sludge into renewable natural gas. Although the process is not emission-neutral, we will utilize the CO₂ produced to grow food in our vertical gardens.

Vertical Farming

We plan to utilize CO₂ from our bio-fuel plant to grow vegetables, significantly reducing our carbon footprint. Vertical farming, compared to traditional agriculture, uses up to 98% less land and water.


Data Hub & Generative AI Center

Energy and food systems are evolving, and digital transformation can seamlessly integrate these advancements.

Digital transformation involves integrating technology into business operations, streamlining processes, enhancing delivery, and ensuring future readiness. While this requires significant infrastructure investment, NTE Discovery Park is already well-prepared. With digital partners onboard and a high-speed fiber optics infrastructure in place, we are leading the way in this evolution.
