Announcing the start of commissioning

Over the period from early-mid December 2018 to the end of January 2019, the Nemo Link interconnector (connecting ELIA and National Grid networks) will be in the commissioning phase.

Active power transfers will take place between Belgium and Great Britain. The associated direction and volume of power flow will vary. Further information on commissioning tests will be provided by 11 am CET at the day ahead stage and published on the Elexon’s transparency platform and on this website.

Consultation on Nemo Link’s contingency plans for Brexit

The consultation on Nemo Link access rules carried out in May 2019 included the underlying assumption that Great Britain would remain within the EU Internal Energy Market (IEM).

This latest consultation explains Nemo Link’s contingency plan in the event Great Britain should leave the IEM, and the access rules that would apply in that scenario.

Comment and views are invited by 14 December 2018.

Nominating long-term physical transmission rights

Nemo Link will be implementing the Regional Nomination Platform (RNP) for customers wishing to nominate acquired long-term physical transmission rights. This is a separate system to the Single Allocation Platform (SAP) provided by the Joint Allocation Office (JAO) where customers participate in auctions to buy long-term capacity. The RNP project is being jointly developed by Nemo Link, IFA and BritNed.

A document has been developed to assist customers to implement changes to systems to be ready to use this platform.
