A major SIA planned for the downstream processing of the Pilbara's resources.
The Maitland Strategic Industrial Area (SIA) is a large scale area designed to support the establishment of strategic and downstream processing operations in the Pilbara region utilising its existing resources such as natural gas, iron ore and salt.
Maitland SIA is connected to the North West Coastal Highway with close access to the Dampier to Bunbury Natural Gas Pipeline and major road connections to the Dampier Port. Energy Developments has chosen to invest in Maitland, using gas from the Dampier to Bunbury Natural Gas Pipeline, for its LNG production facility which supplies power requirements for towns and mines in the Pilbara and Kimberley regions. Extensive support services, skilled workforces and town site amenities are available in the area at Karratha and the Dampier Port.
