Love that deep frontage

In a government-commissioned report, Ernst and Young identified job opportunities. But it also established that a number of Kewdale and Welshpool firms would be lured to the modern industrial estate with its deepwater frontage, protected bay and supporting industries.

The site is highly suitable for the construction of massive modules, weighing up to 15,000 tonnes, that can then be assembled and shipped to North-West ports or trucked to inland resource sites.

The site is also convenient for trucking over-sized loads to the Pilbara, Goldfields and the South West

No similar industrial base exists in the eastern states and work lost overseas – as happened with BHP’s direct reduced iron project when it was picked up by the Philippines – will soon be kept in WA.
