Unplanned Outage Update

We experienced an unplanned outage on 8th December 2020 at 14:03 CET which we confirmed to be a cable fault.

The required repair works are progressing well, and to reflect the latest progress update combined with the technical requirements associated with the return to service, we have revised our estimated return to service dates and profile as follows:

In the GB – NL direction

  • Capacity availability 0 MW until 00:00 CE(S)T on 11/02/2021

In the NL – GB direction

  • Capacity availability 0 MW until 00:00 CE(S)T on 10/02/2021;
  • Capacity availability 508MW from 00:00 CE(S)T on 10/02/2021 until 12:00 CE(S)T on 10/02/2021;
  • Capacity availability 750MW from 12:00 CE(S)T on 10/02/2021 until 00:00 CE(S)T on 11/02/2021.

Full capacity availability is expected from 00:00 on 11/02/2021 in both directions.

This return has been communicated in accordance with REMIT on the ENTSO-E Transparency Platform.

Unfortunately, due to the nature of the work being undertaken there is a chance that we will need to revise this estimated return to service but we will share further information once it is available.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
