Marinus Link

Marinus Link is a proposed 1500 megawatt capacity undersea and underground electricity connection to further link Tasmania and Victoria as part of Australia’s future electricity grid. Marinus Link will be supported by transmission network developments on the North West Tasmanian electricity network.Show Less

Marinus Link involves approximately 250 kilometres of undersea High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) cable and approximately 100 kilometres of underground HVDC cable. It will also include converter stations in Tasmania and Victoria, and approximately 220 kilometres of supporting High Voltage Alternating Current (HVAC) transmission network developments in North West Tasmania.

Together, Marinus Link and the supporting transmission developments will unlock Tasmania’s renewable energy and storage resources to deliver low-cost, reliable and clean energy for customers in the National Electricity Market.

The project is an interconnector, as it connect two or more transmission networks. Interconnectors allow power to flow between different regions (i.e., between Tasmania to Victoria), and allow the efficient transfer of electricity from renewable energy generation zones to where the electricity is needed. Interconnectors can increase the resilience of the National Electricity Market (NEM) and make energy more secure, affordable and sustainable for customers.

The only way to make a difference is to get involved. It’s easy to sit back and wait for others to do something but when you are staring at 75-85m towers in a few years time, you will kicking yourself for not doing something when you had the chance.  This is OUR only chance to stop these towers, so get involved now.

Welcome to the home of Darley Power Fight. A group of residents in Darley, Coimadai and Merrimu, united against high voltage transmission towers passing through our backyard. We came together through the realisation the transmission line will divide a narrow corridor between Darley and the Lerderderg State Park; altering landscape character, causing widespread damage to critical habitat for threatened species, increasing fire risk to the Park and thousands of residents, destroy our visual amenity, harm local agriculture and will impact businesses and property values. It will completely desecrate, in a few years, what nature has taken millions of years to create.
