Condong Sugar Mill

NSW Sugar Milling Co-operative Limited and Delta Electricity formed a joint venture to construct and run two 30 MW co-generation energy plants. In November 2013, the plants were acquired by the Swiss asset management company, Capital Dynamics.

The plants, at Condong (about 4.5km north of Murwillumbah) and Broadwater sugar mills, are fuelled primarily by sugar cane material and operate as power stations within the mills, which are owned by NSW Sugar.

Commercial operation of the plants began in November 2008. Each mill has been upgraded as part of the cogeneration project. All electricity generated is sold to Delta Electricity.

The project involves two 30 MW base load renewable energy co-generation plants fuelled by bagasse (remnant fibre after the cane is crushed to produce sugar and cane leaf.)
