Transmission Company Victoria (TCV) is a new company created by AEMO Victorian Planning to progress the VNI West transmission project.
TCV is currently in the process of applying for a transmission licence in Victoria, which is a normal step for providers of electricity transmission infrastructure in the state.
A transmission licence enables the holder to transmit electricity and operate the transmission infrastructure, and will also support the land access, planning and environment approvals work.
TCV will discuss the VNI West transmission project with landholders, Traditional Owners and the community to understand local concerns and ensure that commitments made in the early stages are captured and honoured across the life of the project.
TCV will provide early project updates and will work with the community on this important transmission line.
We proudly acknowledge the many Traditional Owner groups as the owners of the lands on which VNI West is to be delivered, and pay our respect to their Elders past, present and emerging.
We recognise the deep connection of First Peoples to Country and value their contribution to caring for, and managing the land, water, natural and built landscapes and their profound knowledge systems.
We are committed to pursuing genuine and lasting partnerships with First Peoples to learn about and understand their culture and connections to Country in the way we plan for, and manage, the delivery of this project
We also extend our acknowledgement to all First Peoples and Torres Strait Islander communities and their rich culture, and pay respect to their Elders past, present and emerging.
We have have been consulting with Traditional Owner groups in the lead up to announcing an area of interest, and will continue to work with all relevant Traditional Owners during the next important stage of VNI West, refining this area to a corridor and then an indicative route by Spring. Details of this work and our planned events will be updated here in the near future.
