The Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board has approved the compliance filing for the Maritime Link Project. The filing was submitted by NSP Maritime Link, a subsidiary of energy and services company Emera Inc.

Emera says the Maritime Link is a proposed 500 MW high-voltage direct-current (HVDC) transmission line between Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador. The project will include two 170 km subsea cables across the Cabot Strait, with almost 50 km of overland transmission in Nova Scotia and close to another 300 km of overland transmission on the island of Newfoundland.

"The $1.5 billion investment in the Maritime Link will provide benefits to Nova Scotia customers that significantly exceed the value of the investment over the life of the project," comments Chris Huskilson, president and CEO of Emera.
