Ukraine-Hungary power export capacity rises
London, 20 July (Argus) — Power export capacity from Ukraine to Hungary has seen another increase. Hungarian transmission system operator Mavir auctioned 235MW of daily capacity on its side of the border for tomorrow, bringing the total commercial capacity allocated to the market on 21 July to 585MW.
It was unclear if the new increase would lead to an increase in direct exports from Ukraine or in transit flows to Hungary via Ukraine.
Commercial export capacity from Ukraine to Hungary was increased to 545MW earlier this month, from a typical 455MW, as Ukraine diverted exports destined for Romania towards Hungary to help relieve a tight supply situation in Hungary and the Balkans.
The Hupx day-ahead auction in Hungary has averaged €62.88/MWh so far this month, with daily settlements as high as €116.73/MWh at the start of the month. That compares with an average day-ahead this month of €40.65/MWh in Slovakia and €54.75/MWh in Romania.
