A steering committee has been appointed to oversee the progress of the proposed Pilbara Maritime CUF (PMCUF) in Western Australia’s North-West.
The PMCUF steering committee will be chaired by Richard Muirhead and includes representatives from the departments of Commerce, Regional Development and Lands, State Development and Transport together with members from LandCorp and the Port Hedland and Dampier Port Authorities.
Richard Muirhead had extensive experience in industrial development, and major project management. Mr Muirhead was instrumental in the development of the Australian Marine Complex Common User Facility in Henderson, which has delivered more than 360 projects worth more than $900million since opening in 2003.
The PMCUF will provide access to common-use infrastructure for all regional businesses with capabilities in the support and operation of commercial vessels servicing the offshore oil and gas projects, housing and construction, and requirements of the Royal Australian Navy.
