AEC were engaged to develop a business case to expand the Burdekins existing grain storage facilities to allow for opportunities to further diversify agricultural production. The analysis included:
• A review of the Burdekin agricultural production, current facilities and production potential.
•A financial appraisal of on farm returns of rotational crop production and infrastructure expansion.
• Input-Output modelling to estimate the direct and flow-on impacts of the project during construction and once operational.
• A cost benefit analysis of the project, estimating the net socio-economic benefits to North Queensland.
The findings of the report will be used to support funding applications for the expansion project.
