Formal title: Removal of the requirement to Meter each Boundary Point for Offshore Power Park Modules

Current Status

Awaiting Implementation


P238 proposes a change to Section K of the BSC. It is proposed that all the Exports from (or Imports to) a BM Unit comprising Offshore Power Park Modules (as defined in the Grid Code) can be treated as a single Export (or Import). The effect of this change is to remove the requirement for separate metering of every Boundary Point for offshore wind farms (however a Party may still install separate Metering if they wished to do so). Provided that the installed metering is able to record the energy Exported (or Imported) by each BM Unit that would be sufficient.


On 13 November the Authority approved P238 and it was implemented on 20 November 2009.
