On Tuesday 7 July 2009, Nord Pool Spot will release an update of the web application for urgent market messages (UMMs). Improvements are made both to the application used by companies publishing UMMs and to the functionality on the Nord Pool Spot website for those who are reading UMMs. The improvements are made based on wishes from the users.
The changes to the UMM application are:
• a calendar function for writing dates on message time, failure time etc.
• extended search function for search of UMM history on website
• the xml-files will include also event status
• some visual improvements
In addition to these technical improvements, the fields “available capacity before event” and “available capacity after event” are removed. This is done to ease the follow-up of UMMs especially when there are two parallel events affecting the same installation. The fields “installed capacity” and “capacity during event” will naturally still have to be filled in. Transmission system operator (TSO) and participant UMM guidelines are updated accordingly.
There will be a service break between 16.00 and 17.00 CET on Tuesday 7 July to allow for implementation of the new UMM application. If you need to publish a UMM during this service break, please contact Nord Pool Spot’s trading desk at +47 6752 8010.
