Postponement of the Core Flow-Based Market Coupling project Go-Live date of end of February 2022

SDAC parties regret to inform market participants that the go-live of the Core Flow Based market coupling (FB MC), currently planned for end of February 2022, will be postponed.


External dependencies delayed the timely start of the first phase of Core Joint Integration
Testing. In addition, technical issues encountered during the first weeks of the Joint Integration
Testing, require extending the testing phase to ensure robustness of the systems. Fixes are
being prepared to commence the required re-testing. Core project parties are working hard to
minimise the delay. Due to high complexity of the systems and necessary alignment with
external parties, current expectation is that the go-live would take place between beginning of
Q2 2022 at the earliest and before the end of Q2 2022 at the latest.
Given these circumstances, Core project parties prepared an updated test planning and Core
FB MC roadmap optimising the testing schedule to reduce the postponement of go live of Core
FB MC as much as possible.
The new go live date highly depends on the further progress of the test planning and alignment
with external parties in order to go live with reliable and robust systems. Core project parties will
inform all stakeholders on the new go live date as soon as this is aligned and confirmed by all
involved parties. The Core Consultative Group will be informed in more detail on the update on
29th November. Nevetherless, the Core Joint project parties can confirm already that the
external parallel run as performed today will be continued.
