Lucky Bay port project

Lucky Bay is an innovative port development project on South Australia’s Eyre Peninsula.

The $130 million development is South Australia’s first farmer and private equity partnership port, which involved securing $96 million in private investor equity and debt.

After an expression of interest phase last year, 120 EP grain growers indicated their support for the project with 377,000 tonnes of estimated throughput. 

These growers will acquire equity in the port for ongoing throughput over the next seven years.

Lucky Bay will provide an alternative grain storage and export option which will be fully operational for the 2019-2020 grain harvest.

Thanks to Ron Kandelaars, Mark from @missinglinkmedia and @7NewsAdelaide for this great summary of the new port technology being built at Lucky Bay.

At Lucky Bay, grain will be transported from the bunker site to the port via an internal haul road. This road is practically complete, undergoing final trim, thanks to the team from Buttrose Earthmovers.
