The Elspot price calculation on Wednesday 29 August, for delivery Thursday 30 August, will be performed on the SESAM back up site. This is done as a routine exercise in order to confirm the functionality of the Elspot back up price calculation system.
This requires a technical switch between the SESAM production site and the SESAM back up site, which will make the SESAM system unavailable during the following hours:
- Tuesday 28 August: 15:00 - 18:00 CET, switch from production site to disaster site.
- Wednesday 29 August: 15:00 - 18:00 CET, switch back to production site.
During the switchovers, the SESAM web system will be unavailable for Nord Pool Spot members. Members sending orders 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.
