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.”
