Third party access for CEIP infrastructure
IRON Road has signed a MoU with newly-formed farmers’ co-operative EPCBH to establish a grains export business using Iron Road’s planned Central Eyre Iron Project (CEIP) infrastructure.
The MoU follows a similar partnership between Iron Road and Sumitomo subsidiary Emerald Grain, which is investigating the development of a new grain distribution and supply chain network.
Iron Road managing director Andrew Stocks said the CEIP would unlock significant benefits well beyond the project’s mining and ore processing operations.
“We operate on a principle of third party access to our planned infrastructure business,” he said.
“The approved deep water port at Cape Hardy will be a first for South Australia and a fresh approach to infrastructure development in the region.
“Our ongoing partnership with Emerald Grain, now complemented by EPCBH, will also ensure maximum benefit for local communities and the region.”
