These are some of the projects that Susterra has worked on to give you a flavor of what we do ….
Building Energy Efficiency. The project owner of a new hotel construction project in downtown Seoul is Susterra’s building energy efficiency client. Working closely with the project architects, MEP consultants, electrical and mechanicl engineering consultants, the construction managers and the international hotel chain operator, Susterra is the “Energy Management” consultant to ensure that maximum energy efficiency is achieved at the original construction budget.
Tidal Power. Korea recently began operations on Sihwa Tidal Power Plant, one of the largest tidal power plants in the world at 250MW capacity. And, Korea has plans to build out several more tidal power plants totalling almost 3GW of capacity. Working closely with Halcyon of the US, with patented technology on tidal power plant construction, the Halycon solution can build tidal power plants at much lower construction costs, yield higher power output raising ROI and has much less environmental impact than typical designs.
Solar. Susterra advised Solarion, one of the leading thin film solar technology companies based in Germany, with attracting strategic investors from Korea. Fraunhofer certified Solarion’s CIGS thin film roll-to-roll on flexible substrate to record the highest cell efficiency of over 13%. Since then, Solarion’s cell efficiency has improved to over 14%.
