A subsidiary of the Norwegian energy company Statkraft, the Swedish company Baltic Cable has operated since 1994 a cross-border interconnector linking the German and Swedish electricity transmission networks. The operation of this 600 MW DC submarine facility is the sole activity of Baltic Cable. As the interconnection capacity between the two power systems is less than the transaction demand, the infrastructure is congested and a price differential persists between the two price zones. Baltic Cable's business model is based precisely on this price differential, which enables it to receive an income described as "congestion income or rent".
