Polish Day-Ahead Power Contract Declines as Exports Fall to Zero
Power for delivery tomorrow in Poland slid on increased supply as cross-border exports to neighboring countries were set to halt for most of tomorrow.
Day-ahead power lost 5.9 percent to 182.04 zloty ($57.55) as Poland was forecast to halt flows abroad at all times tomorrow except for 490 megawatts at 7 a.m., 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. Warsaw time to the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Germany. That’s compared with as much as 1,595 megawatts at 7 a.m. today, data from grid manager PSE Operator SA show.
A 460-megawatt facility at the Lagisza plant owned by Tauron Polska Energia SA (TPE) halted yesterday and will be offline for five days, the company said.
A 200-megawatt unit at ZE PAK SA’s Patnow power plant will be halted until Oct. 26 due to an unspecified malfunction, data from PSE Operator showed.
Next-day contracts on the Czech and Slovak markets settled 10 percent lower at 46.01 euros ($59.50) a megawatt-hour in a daily auction. Electricity for the next day in Hungary decreased 13 percent to 46.54 euros a megawatt-hour, according to the countries’ market operators.
