    Statnett: Increased capacity in the power grid between Norway and Sweden


    December 7, 2022 - Contify Energy News

     

      Close operational cooperation between Statnett and Svenska kraftnät over the past year has made it possible to significantly improve capacity between the countries. Statnett has therefore decided to reintroduce the use of system protection in the connection to Sweden in the south. The purpose of this measure was to ensure equal operation on both sides, and through this contribute to the goal of being able to provide the market with the highest possible trading capacity over time through closer operational cooperation between Svk and Statnett.

      Original Press Release:

      Dec. 6 -- Statnett issued the following news release:

      Close operational cooperation between Statnett and Svenska kraftnät over the past year has made it possible to significantly improve capacity between the countries. Statnett has therefore decided to reintroduce the use of system protection in the connection to Sweden in the south.

      - Over the past year, we have collaborated more closely, and see that Svenska Kraftnät's measures over time have contributed to increasing the exchange capacity between Norway and Sweden in the south. We are now reintroducing a solution that ensures better exchange capacity from our side, says CEO Peer Olav Østli.

      It was in November last year that Statnett decided to operate the power grid towards Sweden according to the same principles as the Swedes then did. This meant that system protection was not used, which are measures that can optimize the capacity of the connection to Sweden in certain situations.

      The purpose of this measure was to ensure equal operation on both sides, and through this contribute to the goal of being able to provide the market with the highest possible trading capacity over time through closer operational cooperation between Svk and Statnett.

      - The results from the collaboration and this decision will provide a better utilization of the resources in the power market and will be able to contribute to better access to power across national borders in several situations. It is important for both countries, emphasizes Østli.

      The change will be implemented from Monday 12 December.
