Wairakei–Whakamaru ‘C’ Line Commissioned

03 July 2014

Transpower advises that the latest addition to the National Grid – the new double circuit Wairakei to Whakamaru ‘C’ line – was fully commissioned today.

The new double circuit Wairakei–Whakamaru ‘C’ line enables the connection of new and existing geothermal generation being built in the area and provides sufficient capacity for the future. The lower capacity Wairakei–Whakamaru ‘B’ line will now be removed.
