As Australia transitions to a clean energy future, the development of high voltage transmission networks will play a key role in decarbonising the economy by facilitating the efficient connection and transfer of renewable energy generation to homes and businesses. The North West Transmission Developments (NWTD) project being progressed by TasNetworks is a major upgrade of the Tasmanian 220kV transmission network to connect the proposed 1500MW Marinus Link HVDC Interconnector to the Tasmanian transmission network to meet Tasmania’s future energy needs whilst supporting the wider NEM’s transition to reliable renewables. The NWTD project includes constructing and commissioning 240km of high capacity transmission lines interconnected to both new and existing substations.

Join the Engineering Leader of the NWTD, Robert Scott, to learn about the NWTD project and listen to how TasNetworks has resolved some of the technical NWTD project challenges to date with innovative solutions whilst being considerate of social impacts and regulatory necessities to ensure the NWTD is successfully delivered.
