This is to confirm the status of the launch of the CWE price coupling combined with the CWE-Nordic Interim Tight Volume Coupling (ITVC).

On behalf of the project partners, we are pleased to report that the required five days of  “end to end” tests have been completed successfully, and that the combined CWE-ITVC launch date of 9th November is now confirmed.

As mentioned within the last status, the testing phases of step 2 including NorNed cable have been delayed due to the extensive testing on step 1 the last weeks. The involved TSOs and PXs are now drafting an updated implementation plan for ITVC including NorNed. We will come back with a status on 19th November 2010 at the latest.
