The Elspot price calculation on Wednesday 7 November, for delivery Thursday 8 November, will be performed on the SESAM backup site. This is done as a routine exercise in order to confirm the functionality of the Elspot backup price calculation system.
This requires a technical switch between the SESAM production site and the SESAM backup site, which will make the SESAM system unavailable during the following hours:
- Tuesday 6 November: 15:00 - 18:00 CET, switch from production site to backup site.
- Wednesday 7 November: 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.
