Commissioned in 2008, Cape Byron is one of the largest base load generators of renewable power in Australia. Cape Byron Management purchased the Broadwater and Condong power stations in November 2013 and has continued to implement a range of efficiency, reliability and environmental improvements. Since taking over the power stations annual renewable energy generation has increased by more than 20% at both Broadwater and Condong.
The 38MW biomass power station at Broadwater produces clean, renewable electricity from mostly sugar cane milling waste, along with certain types of wood residues and energy crops, commonly referred to as ‘biomass’ fuel.
Cape Byron Management aims to be at the forefront of sustainable biomass practices and has a commitment to continuous improvement and innovation, driving fuel procurement according to defined principles of best practice.
