The proposed route for Marinus Link will run from North West Tasmania to the Latrobe Valley in Victoria. Marinus Link will not follow the same route as Basslink in Tasmania or Victoria.

Victoria and Bass Strait

Marinus Link will support Victorian renewable energy developments: for example, with Marinus Link in operation, excess energy generated by Victorian renewables could be transferred to Tasmania and stored in pumped hydro energy storage facilities, ready to be used when needed and enabling more low cost, reliable and clean energy.

This is a project of international scale and national significance that can support regional Victoria as the energy market transitions to an increased use of renewables. Construction and operation of Marinus Link is anticipated to add an estimated $1.5 billion of direct value to the Victorian economy and create approximately 1,400 direct and indirect jobs during peak construction.

The connection from Victoria – in the Latrobe Valley – is at Hazelwood Substation, where there is access to significant Latrobe Valley transmission capacity.

North West Tasmania

The proposed location of Marinus Link in North West Tasmania enables connection into some of Australia’s best renewable energy and storage resources.
