Power outage reported between France and Spain on 24 July 2021
26/07/2021

As reported from ENTSO-e website, on Saturday, 24 July 2021, due to a major incident originated in France, France and Spain were disconnected at 16:36 CEST and were brought back into normal operation by the responsible TSOs of Spain and France at 17:09 CEST.

Investigation and verification are currently ongoing on whether the forest fire along the line route was the root cause of the event.

During the disturbance, the frequency deviation of the large part of the Continental Europe was kept within a narrow margin between 49.96 and 50.07 Hz, whereas in the Iberian Peninsula the deviation was more substantial and involved further emergency measures according to the predefined plans. The load and customers which were disconnected in the Iberian Peninsula after 16:36 CEST, were again connected and re-supplied after 17:09 CEST.

REE later communicated via a first Twitter post that an incident with a seaplane has generated a problem in the French very high voltage network, causing the temporary disconnection of the peninsula from the rest of Europe. The problem was solved, as affirmed bu the Spanish TSO, by restoring the interconnection and the affected electricity supply.

Then, with a second Tweet, REE stated that 36 minutes after the incident occurred, the first interconnection line with France was restored. At 5:33 p.m., the interconnection was fully coupled and at 5:38 p.m. the supply was recovered throughout the system.

The Ministers signed a Ministerial Declaration to set the future of the energy sector for the Euro-Mediterranean region. As energy is a major factor for achieving stability and shared prosperity, the objective of the Declaration is to push forward existing regional cooperation in order to deliver secure, affordable and sustainable energy supply in the Mediterranean region, while addressing the growing climate-related and population growth and energy demand challenges that the region is facing, as well as the recovery from the pandemic.

The conference recalled all the work that has contributed to developing the “Near Zero Carbon 2050” scenario as an important achievement of the action conducted by the UfM Energy Platforms, demonstrating the important role of regional energy associations and organizations like Med-TSO , that enable a bottom-up approach for exchanging experience and reaching common understanding towards the harmonization of energy systems around the region.

The UfM co-Presidency, in collaboration with the Platforms’ Secretariats, will continue coordinating the work of the three UfM Energy Platforms, including also where relevant other platforms of the UfM such as Research and Innovation, involving the relevant actors in the manner set out in the working guidelines.
