Next Steps

Our analysis continues into 2019 and will include:

  • considering feedback on Initial Feasibility Report;
    updating route option, economic, technical and approvals feasibility assessments;
  • working with AEMO as the Victorian transmission planner and national planner, to progress further work on the ISP and Marinus Link RIT-T process (where required) – with a final assessment forecast by December 2019;
  • assessing in greater detail the financial and commercial considerations to support the viability of Marinus Link, to secure an income stream, financing and appropriate customer pricing outcomes for Marinus Link; and
  • summarising analysis in the Final Feasibility and Business Case Assessment Report, forecast to be released in December 2019.
