National Grid and Anbaric Transmission join forces

Transmission company National Grid and Anbaric, headquartered in Wakefield, Massachusetts, have chosen to come together as Green Line Infrastructure Alliance.

The objective is to transform New England’s energy landscape while driving a healthy regional local economy and environment. The alliance will work to develop large-scale, high-voltage direct-current transmission projects that combine wind and hydropower to address regional energy issues.

Green Line Infrastructure Alliance initially will develop the Maine Green Line – a hybrid land-and-sea HVDC project that will initially transmit 1,000MW (expandable to 2,000MW) of wind from northern Maine, firmed up by imports of hydropower from eastern Canada, via a submarine cable to Massachusetts.
