A World Class Site for Green Economy

The world is in transition. The only truly sustainable energy model is green and renewable. It’s circular. The facilities at NTE Discovery Park will imitate natural ecosystems to capture and reuse energy, infrastructure, and waste.

Our goal: a world-class, self-sustaining, net-zero industrial park. Join us as we invest in British Columbia for our collective future…

Project Details

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

Existing site infrastructure features an electrical substation that is connected to two 138 kV transmission lines, providing over 200MW of 100% renewable hydro energy power supply from BC Hydro, sourced from a dam approximately 6 km away from the site with a rate as low as C$0.05/kWh. Additional facilities include a solid industrial waste landfill to handle hazardous substance disposal needs, a complimentary wastewater treatment facility, fresh water supply, and two deepwater piers for dock usage and direct ocean water access.

The multi-use site is currently leased to tenants in industries including but not limited to green data centres, modular construction, marine services, and steel fabrication. New Times Energy is working on redeveloping Discovery Park into a green-tech hub to attract new tenants that align with our ESG mandate. The site is an ideal candidate for aquaculture, green hydrogen, as well as renewable natural gas given the low-cost electricity on-site and ample supply of ocean and fresh water. We are actively exploring ways to bring such projects to fruition through support and cooperation from local and federal government.

We are actively seeking to partner with well-known and established ag-tech companies both in Canada and globally to provide efficient, localized food supply solutions and using indoor farming technologies. Discovery Park will contribute to redefining the way traditional agriculture is being carried out for certain food groups, by overcoming seasonal and climate constraints, and eliminating wasteful long supply chain agriculture that ultimately benefits the Western Canadian people, resources, and economy.

Co-Development of Green Hydrogen Plant in Campbell River

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.

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.



Discovery Park Redevelopment

We are excited to announce a Public Information Meeting for the OCP Amendment Application for the redevelopment of Discovery Park, located at 4200 and 4405 North Island Highway, Campbell River, BC. This meeting is an opportunity for the community to learn more about our project and share their feedback.

Aplin & Martin Consultants Ltd. (Aplin Martin) is collaborating with NTE Discovery Park Ltd. on this proposed OCP Amendment. The subject site, designated as a Business & Industrial Service Centre, Rural, and Agriculture Land Reserve, is being developed into a “green ecosystem” industrial area. This initiative focuses on revitalizing industrial activities and considers integrating complementary uses such as commercial, residential, and recreational facilities to support the creation of a future employment centre. These efforts are intended to contribute to increased job opportunities and economic growth in Campbell River and its surrounding community.
