Friday should see the reopening of electron swapping between Denmark and the Netherlands. A fault in the link has otherwise been keeping the 700-MW interconnector out of commission since Sept. 25 last year – meaning 106 days of downtime.
"Since the end of September, Tennet has been working hard to get the Cobra Link up and running as soon as possible after a fault in the cable was discovered. Over the last couple of weeks, a crew has been working from a seaborne vessel. The cable was cut on the seabed at a depth of 40 meters and lifted. A length of 200 meters on both sides of the cable was examined to find the exact location of the flaw," transmission system operator Tennet writes to EnergyWatch.
