Directions to VIC generators – 1 December 2016

On 1 December 2016, AEMO issued a direction to a Market Participant in Victoria to ramp down to 0 MW and desynchronise to restore power system security in Victoria. The direction was required to reduce the flow from South Australia to Victoria on the Heywood Interconnector below the limit of 250 MW. 

Where the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) intervenes in the NEM through the use of directions, AEMO must publish a report in accordance with National Electricity Rules (NER) clauses 4.8.9(f) and 3.13.6A.

The NEM Event report below satisfies those NER obligations and is based on information available to AEMO at the time of publication:

In accordance with NER Clause 3.15.7B (c)(1), AEMO is required to appoint an Independent Expert to assess and determine the additional compensation claims for the Directed participant that exceeds the $20,000 threshold and exceeds the $100,000 aggregate threshold. 

Further information on the appointment and reports completed by the Independent Expert(s) relating to the reporting period of 1 December 2016 is accessible from the following page(s):
