Marinus Link RIT-T Project Assessment Draft Report (PADR) forums

February 6th, 2020

Category: News

An opportunity to engage with TasNetworks about the proposed Marinus Link second Bass Strait Victoria – Tasmania electricity interconnector.

TasNetworks has a number of engagement forums scheduled in the coming weeks as part of the public consultation process for the Marinus Link Project Assessment Draft Report (PADR).

The Marinus Link PADR was released in December 2019, and is the next step in the Regulatory Investment Test for Transmission (RIT-T) process to determine whether Marinus Link could be developed as a regulated transmission service.

The engagement forums will provide a summary of the findings and assumptions of the PADR and a project update, including the findings of the Australian Energy Market Operator’s draft 2020 Integrated System Plan, and our next steps for the project.

We also note the Energy Security Board’s work to progress cost allocation methodology for interconnectors.

The PADR and supporting summary document is available from the Marinus Link website here.

The Marinus Link Business Case Assessment, which was released alongside the PADR, and a summary document and fact sheet can be downloaded here.

Anyone interested in learning more about the proposed economic market modelling, and/or making a submission on the Marinus Link and supporting transmission RIT-T Project Assessment Draft Report, is encouraged to attend one of our RIT-T industry engagement forums.

Registration is free and open to all interested parties, but will close 7 days prior to the commencement of each event.

Please feel free to share this invitation with your colleagues.
