We acted for the operators of the sub-sea electricity Interconnectors to France and Netherlands in connection with the EU project to develop Harmonised Allocation Rules setting out a common approach to allocating long term cross-border capacity rights. This is a key step.

The project was driven by the requirements of the Third Energy Package including, in particular, the Network Code on Forward Capacity Allocation. Our role included participating in the process of drafting the Harmonised Allocation Rules and amending the existing the Access Rules for the IFA and BritNed interconnectors covering the other aspects of interconnector access.

"They are very professional, respond promptly, always discuss the monthly bill and have, so far, provided us with excellent advice in connection with employment issues. I have been very satisfied."
