Megatech Acquires $113M Renewable Energy Project to Strengthen MGT Token Value Proposition with Migration to BSC and Rebrand

The project stands as fully-developed and compliant with all legislative requirements. It is also signed off by all applicable authorities, including the national energy supplier, Eskom.

Tag Template - News Hub PRO CoinGenius Hosts Virtual Crypto Event The Road To Mass Adoption

The acquisition goes beyond the expectations of its initial roadmap, further increasing value to its token holders in the long run. Likewise, it aims to utilise the MGT token for P2P green renewable energy trade among consumers. Soon to come are Green MGT Megaverse and carbon credit-backed NFTs.

The Beta project value stands at $113 million, encompassing a 60-megawatt farm and a 100-megawatt world-class storage technology. The move increases profitability with the opportunity to sell green energy at peak rates, blue chipping listed parties who previously signed the project for kick-off.

The project approximates its profits at $624.568 million in the next 20 years from selling green energy and trading carbon credits. Moreover, it will be battling carbonization and reducing the carbon footprint of large energy consumers.

How the Project Will Bring More Value to Token Holders

The project will dedicate 40% of its profits to the custodian company, MGT Solar PTY. Its management falls under the fiduciary directors, who also act as custodians for token holders participating in the performance staking program.

Notably, all the profits garnered from MGT Solar PTY will go to participating token holders as financial rewards.

The mechanism ensures that despite the MGT token being a utility token, holders can be rest assured that the projects and plants are backing its value and rewards. As such, this factor ensures sustainability and increased value to all holders.

A Token Built to Push Sustainable Green Energy

Each MGT Token is backed by MGT Solar PTY Ltd and the 60mw solar plant. Notably, the first two plants will kick off in 2022. Additionally, the whole project is a golden opportunity as green energy projects take up to 60 months for development and maturity to beta status.

Along with these new steps, the project transitioned to the Binance Smart Chain, known among the most progressive platforms offering support to upcoming projects. 

The project rounded up its ICO and is boasting a listing on the Bitmart exchange, with the next exchange listing scheduled to occur on 7th March. It hopes to round up 3 more listings on major exchanges in the coming 6 weeks. 

About Megatech

MGT Solar (PTY) Ltd is an Alternative Energy Supply firm. It adopts the most advanced green sustainable energy technology to solve feasibility issues while assuring maximum efficiency and profitability.

There is high demand for electricity supply, particularly in Africa, and one of the most significant challenges is developing feasible and sustainable green energy solutions. Hence, combining cutting-edge solar energy technology, revolutionary storage technology, and a dynamic funding model was necessary to ensure minimal turnaround time and exponential profitability.

Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Holds Christening and Launch Ceremony in Shimonoseki for Japan’s First LNG-fueled Ferry

Tag Template - News Hub PRO CoinGenius Hosts Virtual Crypto Event The Road To Mass Adoption

TOKYO, Mar 3, 2022 - (JCN Newswire) - Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Co., Ltd., a Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) Group company based in Yokohama, today held a christening and launch ceremony for the SUNFLOWER KURENAI, the first of two large LNG-fueled ferries being built for Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL). The ceremony took place at the Enoura Plant at MHI's Shimonoseki Shipyard & Machinery Works in Yamaguchi Prefecture. The handover is scheduled for December 2022, following completion of interior work and sea trials. The new vessel will go into service from January 2023 on a regular route between Osaka and Beppu operated by Oita-based Ferry Sunflower Limited, replacing the SUNFLOWER IVORY and SUNFLOWER COBALT ferries in service since 1997.

Christening and Launch Ceremony of "SUNFLOWER KURENAI"

The SUNFLOWER KURENAI is 199.9m long and 28.0m wide, with gross tonnage of approximately 17,300. The vessel has capacity to accommodate 716 passengers, an estimated 137 13-meter trucks, and roughly 100 passenger cars. The main engine is a high-performance dual-fuel engine - the first of its kind featured on a domestic ferry - that can run on both liquefied natural gas (LNG) and A-type heavy oil. It offers outstanding environmental performance, achieving a 20% reduction in CO2 emissions and close to zero emissions of sulfur oxides (SOx), thereby mitigating environmental impact.

Compared to earlier ferries, the SUNFLOWER KURENAI also features significantly more loading capacity for trucks, a more spacious lounge for truck drivers, and substantially greater space per passenger. Expansive public areas include enlarged bathing facilities, a more spacious restaurant, and an atrium extending through three stories. In these and other ways, the new ferry responds to today's modal shift in the transport industry(Note1) while simultaneously achieving advances in the casual cruise business.

As part of MHI Group's strategic initiatives to advance the energy transition, Mitsubishi Shipbuilding is reducing the carbon footprint of the maritime industry through construction of LNG-fueled ships, as a way of contributing to realization of a carbon neutral society. Japan today is undergoing a modal shift from land transport to maritime transport in a quest to reduce carbon emissions as well as to offset a shortage of long-haul truck drivers and achieve workstyle reform. In tandem with this shift, demand is increasing for ferries and RoRo ships(Note2) and for ever-larger ships. Going forward, Mitsubishi Shipbuilding, as a maritime system integrator, will continue building fuel-efficient and environmentally harmonious ferries and cargo-passenger ships supporting stable operation, working closely with its business partners to solve diverse issues needing to be addressed.

(1) The transition underway in cargo transport away from reliance on trucks and other vehicles, toward increased use of trains and ships, which have a lighter environmental footprint.
(2) Roll-on Roll-off ship: a ship enabling loaded trucks, trailers, and other cargo vehicles to board and disembark directly, under their own power.
