Unicorn Systems Supports Integrated CZ-SK-HU-RO Day-Ahead Electricity Market

Unicorn Systems SK has completed deployment of the mTMF information system for Slovenská elektrizačná prenosová sústava, a.s. (hereinafter only SEPS).

The system shall provide integration of all involved transmission system operators and market operators in the interconnected Slovak, Czech, Hungarian, and Romanian day-ahead electricity markets.

As described in a press release published by SEPS, a.s., operation of the extended Market Coupling, integrating Slovak, Czech, Hungarian, and Romanian day-ahead electricity markets, also known as 4MMC, has started at the end of the last year.

Based on submitted requirements, Unicorn Systems SK provided SEPS with a central communication hub to ensure data and information interchange among transmission system operators (ČEPS, SEPS, MAVIR, and Transelectrica) and market operators (OTE, OKTE, HUPX, and OPCOM).

The mTMF system is mission-critical for transmission system operators, as it provides data interchange in pre-coupling and post-coupling phases; its existence also fundamentally simplifies the entire architecture and contributes to its overall reliability.

The deployed technical solution is another step on the path to achieving a common EU objective: a unified electricity market, built through expanding regional initiatives, including 4MMC.

Jaroslav Kubinec, Executive Director of SEPS Trade Department, says:

“I believe it shows their appreciation of our company and experts operating the original TMF system, that our foreign partners once more entrusted us with the development and implementation process and later agreed that SEPS operates the central mTMF system for the extended Market Coupling format in the form of 4MMC. Unicorn Systems SK has once again proven itself to be a reliable partner, successfully deploying the solution approved by all involved transmission system operators in close cooperation with our experts pursuant to the agreed schedule.”
“I am happy Unicorn Systems SK could participate in this European project, delivering a solution which contributes to smooth and stable functioning of CZ-SK-HU-RO Market Coupling, reliably integrating all the partners”,

says Miloš Dvořák, Managing Director Unicorn Systems SK.
