At 14.00 CET on 4 March 2009 the intra day trading platform Elbas opens for trading of the hours of 5 March in Nord Pool Spot’s Norwegian bidding areas NO1 and NO2 controlled by Statnett. Elbas is open 24 hours a day every day of the week including Saturdays and Sundays.
To ensure that participants are familiar with the Elbas system by the launch on 4 March, Nord Pool Spot AS is arranging a joint simulated trading session during week 9 on the 24, 25 and 26 February.
Participants who wish to take part in the simulated trading session must send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org informing who will be responsible for trading. Information on how to log in and test trade in the Elbas system will then be forwarded. The simulated trading will take place on our test site at https://elbas-test.nordpoolspot.com/
The system will be available during all hours of the test days. It is recommended to concentrate the test activities during the below time periods, however, in order to create sufficient trading activity:
- 24 February 13-16 (CET)
- 25 February 13-16 (CET)
- 26 February 13-16 (CET)
The Elbas helpdesk will be available for assistance during the testing.
