ENTSO-E agrees to start trial synchronization of continental European power grids with those of Ukraine, Moldova from March 16
Continental European energy system operators have agreed to start a trial synchronization of the energy systems of Ukraine and Moldova with the continental European energy system.
"Following an urgent request by Ukrenergo and Moldova for emergency synchronization, the TSOs of Continental Europe agreed to start on March 16, 2022 the trial synchronization of the Continental European Power System with the power systems of Ukraine and Moldova. This acceleration of the synchronization project ongoing since 2017 has been possible thanks to the previous studies carried out and the adoption of risks mitigation measures," the report reads.
"Continental Europe TSOs are now supporting the stability of the Ukrainian-Moldovan power system following a positive analysis which confirmed that an emergency synchronization is technically feasible with a number of measures to ensure safe and secure power systems," it says.
"This is a significant milestone for the Continental Europe TSOs working in collaboration with Ukrenergo and Moldelectrica that are operating their respective power systems under extremely difficult circumstances. ENTSO-E would like to thank the European Commission, all TSOs involved and their national authorities for their support and assistance in the synchronization process,"
