The Cook Government is continuing to drive economic diversification opportunities in the Pilbara, with the new multi-user facility and logistics hub at Port Hedland’s Lumsden Point reaching another milestone.

“We know there are enormous opportunities in the Pilbara for job-creating new green industries, but we need the infrastructure in place to facilitate this growth. The Lumsden Point development will open up new opportunities in battery metals and renewable energy – ensuring the Pilbara remains the nation’s economic engine room long into the future,” said Premier Roger Cook.

The Lumsden Point project, backed by a $129.1 million State Government commitment, includes construction of seawalls, a causeway to connect the wharf to the proposed logistics hub, dredging of the inner harbour and construction of the roads and intersections in support of the Pilbara Hydrogen Hub.

The Pilbara Ports Authority has awarded MGN Civil the contract for the west seawall construction, with works expected to begin shortly.

Pilbara based businesses are set to benefit from the west seawall contract, with 100 per cent of materials, suppliers and sub-contractors to be sourced within the region, and additional labour opportunities on offer.

MGN Civil began construction of the first stage of the seawalls (east seawall) in January 2023, and will complete the first stage works next month.

The Lumsden Point development will deliver new multi-user facilities and berths, diversifying trade in the Pilbara and supporting growth of renewable industries in Australia and overseas.
