The performance of the state’s government-owned companies will be scrutinised and picked apart in detail over four days next week.

Hydro Tasmania’s handling of the state energy crisis earlier this year, and its moves on future energy security, is set to be a highlight of the hearings when company bosses face a House of Assembly panel on Thursday.

The company posted a $65.4 million pre-tax loss which it blamed on costs associated with the Basslink outage.

The performance of the perpetual loss-making Forestry Tasmania, and the government’s plan to make the entity viable from next year, will also face the same committee for the last of the hearings on Friday.

A Legislative Council committee on Tuesday will scrutinise TasRail, Aurora Energy and TasWater.

The committee will look at Tasmanian Irrigation, Metro Tasmania and TasRacing on Wednesday. 

The House of Assembly committee will put a microscope on TT-Line and TasPorts on Friday.
