Project Marinus have commenced landowner and community engagement from Palmerston (near Cressy) to Sheffield, and from Sheffield to Heybridge (near Burnie). As part of their North West Transmission Developments, new infrastructure is needed to increase network capacity and ensure the power system can accommodate future renewable energy and storage developments proposed for the region. The existing transmission infrastructure in these sections was built in 1957.
Community drop in-sessions are scheduled at Cressy on the 28th November, Deloraine on the 3rd of December and Sheffield on the 5th of December. You can find out more about these and the proposed developments here
