NYBRO, Denmark — Commissioning of the Baltic Pipe's receiving terminal in Nybro, western Denmark, has been pushed back due to technical issues at the complex.
The terminal, which will receive gas from the Norwegian North Sea pipeline Europipe II, was due to be commissioned tomorrow, but commissioning will now take place in two stages.
Phase 1 should take place on Nov. 1, with half of the total capacity (6,700 MWh/h). Full commissioning will follow later in 2022.
According to Torben Brabo, Energinet's director of International Relations, “The challenges include IT systems and the important control and security systems.”
But the delay in Nybro will not affect gas volumes to Poland. Baltic Pipe was commissioned with partial capacity on Oct. 1, and it has since supplied gas to Polish consumers through the new gas pipeline, delivered from the European gas system and the Danish North Sea.
