Global energy company EDL was honoured to host Queensland Government Minister Stirling Hinchliffe on Friday 14 December.
The Minister performed the official opening of the company’s global headquarters at Waterfront Place for a group of EDL customers, partners and stakeholders.
CEO James Harman said the event was a major milestone for the company.
“EDL has a proud 30 year history and a drive to be the leading global producer of sustainable distributed energy,” Mr Harman said.
“The timing of this opening also coincides with the recent launch of our new brand across the globe. We are proud of the new brand that reflects both our strong history and our plans for the future.
“With 99 power stations in five countries across three continents, we are proud of our strong reputation for safety, innovation, customer service and delivery and we are embracing our role in the world’s transition from traditional energy sources to decarbonised solutions.
“Queensland has always been very important to the EDL business. From pioneering the waste coal mine gas industry in the Bowen Basin; to constructing Australia’s first ever solar farm integrated with a gas-fired power station at South32’s Cannington operation in the North West Minerals Province; and recently partnering with QUT on the innovative hydrogen research project here in Brisbane.
“We thank the Minister for officially opening our global headquarters and passed on our thanks to the Palaszczuk Government for providing an attractive business environment for companies wishing to make Brisbane their global head office.”
A leading global producer of sustainable distributed energy, EDL owns and operates a portfolio of 99 power stations in Australia, North America and Europe.
