Polish Power for Saturday Delivery Rises Amid Unplanned Outages

Polish electricity for Saturday advanced as unplanned outages reduced supply.

Power for tomorrow rose 4 percent from a week ago to 175.14 zloty ($56.55) a megawatt-hour, exchange data compiled by Bloomberg show.

Tauron Polska Energia SA (TPE) will halt a 460-megawatt unit at its Lagisza plant tomorrow in an unplanned stoppage, while PGE SA (PGE) will stop a 370-megawatt Belchatow unit for two days, the utilities said.

Poland was set to halt exports to the Czech Republic, Germany and Slovakia tomorrow, after shipping as much as 845 megawatts to those countries a week ago, data from the power grid manager PSE Operator SA showed.

Day-ahead electricity on the coupled markets of the Czech Republic and Slovakia slumped 17 percent to 32.46 euros ($42.78) a megawatt-hour in a daily auction, according to the countries’ market operators. Hungarian day-ahead power jumped 39 percent to 54.41 euros a megawatt-hour.
