One Estlink cable out of commission

Estlink 2, the larger of the two undersea cables connecting the Estonian and Finnish power systems, went down early on Friday morning. Experts hope to find out why this week.

Elering, the Estonian TSO, announced that preliminary analysis showed that a short-circuit had occurred.

Representatives of Nexans, the cable company, will arrive in Estonia on Wednesday to troubleshoot.

Estlink 1 is still up and running and can carry 342 MW to Estonia and 358 MW to Finland.
