Maritime Link - Loss Factor

NSPML has recalculated the Transmission Loss Factor as required by the Emera and Nalcor Transmission Service Agreements.

The calculated Loss Factor to be applied for Maritime Link transactions from September 15th, 2021, to October 14th, 2021, inclusive, is 4.85%.


Change from Last Period

To calculate the loss factor, the transfers in August as well as estimated station losses for valve cooling, transformer cooling and auxiliary systems are utilized. The loss factor has increased from the previous period due to a larger number of low-kW transfers throughout the month of August. The loss factor for this period is 4.85%.

Last period, covering August 15th, 2021, to September 14th, 2021, inclusive, had a loss factor of 4.84%.

The next update will be published on October 10th, 2021.
