The Elspot price calculation on Wednesday 2 April, for delivery Thursday 3 April, will be performed on the SESAM 'disaster site'. This is done as an emergency exercise in order to confirm the functionality of the Elspot back up price calculation system.
This requires technical switches between the SESAM production site and the SESAM disaster site, which will make the SESAM system unavailable during the following hours:
• April 1: 15.00 - 18.00, switch from production site to disaster site.
• April 2: 15.00 - 18.00, switch back to production site.
During the switchovers the SESAM web system will be unavailable for Nord Pool Spot participants. Participants sending bids through EDI during switchover may experience delays in acknowledgements.
The switchover will have no practical implications except for the unavailability during the hours mentioned above.
