The Nordic TSOs are performing a test procurement of FRR-A in week 49 of 2013.
A total Nordic volume capacity of 300 MW will be used during 05:00-08:00. No FRR-A capacity will be used in other hours in week 49. The national TSOs will inform about how this affects the national procurements.
The background for this test is that Nordic TSOs are planning to change the use of FRR-A from January 2014 such that use of FRR-A is concentrated in hours with largest problems with frequency excursions.
In week 50 – 52, 100 MW FRR-A will be used.
A new market message for capacity in 2014 will follow later.
