NEC partners with Celestino to bring the new Sydney Science Park to life

NEC Australia (NEC) has today furthered it support to develop Greater Western Sydney into a region of the future with the announcement of a new partnership with leading Australian developer, Celestino.

Under a new memorandum of understanding (MoU) NEC will work closely with Celestino to explore opportunities to develop Celestino’s new Sydney Science Park into an internationally recognised epicentre for research, development, commercialisation and innovation in the heart of the Western Sydney Parkland City.

NEC Australia President and CEO, Mitsuhiro Murooka, said the opportunity to work so closely with Celestino on Sydney Science Park aligns exactly with NEC Australia’s ambitions and experience. “This partnership underpins NEC Australia’s vision to create a sustainable, innovative and connected future.

Working closely with Celestino will seek to create opportunities for NEC to demonstrate the power of our leading technology solutions and expertise across the education, health, smart cities and community safety sectors,” he said.

“NEC brings over 150 years of global expertise to the development of Western Sydney Parkland City and through our growing ecosystem of partners, which now includes the industry-leading Celestino, we can help shape a more connected, sustainable and smart future for Australia,” said Mr Mitsuhiro.

Together, NEC and Celestino will collaborate on the essential elements needed to create a sustainable, innovation ecosystem, while looking for opportunities to develop innovative new technologies and processes for a Smart City development at Sydney Science Park; pilot new products and services; and integrate NEC’s relevant products and services to deliver key elements of the Sydney Science Park Smart City Framework.

“An integral part of delivering the vision for Sydney Science Park will be through the establishment of strategic and collaborative partnerships with researchers, innovators and high-tech industries, said Duncan Challen General Manager Business Development for Celestino.

“Collaborations with world leading technology companies such as NEC will play an important role in shaping the design, development and operation of a truly world class smart city”.
