Cape Byron Management is the manager of the Cape Byron Power business which is ultimately owned by Cape Byron Infrastructure LP, a UK Registered Partnership (Registration number: LP15697) which in turn is managed by the Quinbrook group (www.quinbrook.com). The business 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. We operate a 68 MW portfolio of biomass power stations, 30 MW at Condong and 38 MW at Broadwater, both on the NSW north coast.
