Today marks an important step forward for Meranti’s new green steel project in Thailand, as Global Power Synergy Public Company Limited (GPSC), Thailand, and Meranti Steel Pte. Ltd., Singapore, announced strategic cooperation. The cooperation aims to establish renewable solutions including offsite solar & wind energy and a future green hydrogen supply chain for one of South-East Asia’s first green steel projects.


The partnership, formalized with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), highlights both companies’ commitment to driving industrial decarbonisation. In attendance at the signing were the Executive Vice President of Business Development of GPSC, Dr Rosaya Teinwan, and the CEO of Meranti Steel, Dr Sebastian Langendorf.

With operations scheduled to commence in late 2027, Meranti’s new green steel plant promises to significantly lower carbon dioxide emissions. Using the latest technology, sustainable solutions, and an innovative energy concept, the plant is projected to reduce carbon emissions over time by up to 3 million tonnes annually, compared to traditional blast furnace technologies.
