Transend Networks Pty Ltd is a former electrical government-owned business which operated in Tasmania, Australia between 1998 and 2014. It was formed by the disaggregation of the Hydro-Electric Commission, and ceased operation when it merged with the distribution division of Aurora Energy to form the combined network business TasNetworks.
Transend transmitted electricity from power stations in Tasmania and on mainland Australia (via Basslink) to its customers around the state. Transend's customers included electricity generators, electricity networks and major industrial customers.
Transend was a participant in Australia's National Electricity Market (NEM). The NEM operates on an interconnected power system that extends from Queensland to South Australia. Tasmania is connected to the NEM via Basslink.
Transend also owned and operated a telecommunications business that serves customers in the electricity supply industry and in other industries.
