Maritime Link

A 480 km High Voltage direct current (HVdc) transmission link is planned between the island of Newfoundland and Nova Scotia and will be financed and constructed by Nova Scotia’s Emera Inc.

Construction of the Maritime Link will create a new connection from the island of Newfoundland to the North American power grid for the first time in history. This connection will improve the reliability of the province’s electricity system and provide a channel to export surplus power not immediately needed in the province.
