Project Marinus - Second interconnector assessment

We're undertaking a feasibility and business case assessment into further Bass Strait interconnection, in partnership with the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA).

The purpose of Project Marinus is to assess the viability of further interconnection between Tasmania and the rest of the National Energy Market (NEM).

Project Marinus released its Project Specification Consultation Report (PSCR) and accompanying PSCR summary for public consultation in July 2018. This report was our first step in the regulatory investment test for transmission (RIT-T) process for a second Bass Strait interconnector, considering whether an interconnector solution maximises net economic benefits in the NEM.

Stakeholders, interest groups and members of the public were invited to have their say on the content of the PSCR and submissions closed on 26 October 2018. The submissions will assist us with the next stage of the RIT-T process, and the resulting Project Assessment Draft Report (PADR), due in June 2019.

These submissions are now available on the Project Marinus website by clicking on the RIT-T heading.
