“We believe Iona is an attractive core infrastructure asset for our clients with an essential role in the Australian east coast energy supply value chain.

“It has long-term contracts with its customers, which underpin stable and predictable cash flows while also presenting a platform for further growth and expansion opportunities,” he said.

The deal is expected to be completed in the December-quarter of 2015.
