The commissioning procedures for the complex overall Kriegers Flak Combined Grid Solution system are confronted with the travel and movement restrictions currently imposed by the governments in Denmark, Sweden and Germany due to Corona-Pandemic.
As far as can be seen now, due to these special circumstances as well as the complex tests for the Kriegers Flak overall system there will be some extra time needed. That means that the interconnection is expected for launch end of August 2020.
50Hertz and Energinet are monitoring the situation very closely and are making all efforts to develop alternative ways to continue the individual commissioning steps. The multi-national project team is familiar with virtual working spaces and uses these options increasingly these days. Nevertheless, some working packages need people to be on site.
