Estlink 2, the larger of the two undersea cables connecting the Estonian and Finnish power systems, went down on August 8 but should be up again by Tuesday, said the cable company that is resolving the problem.

Elering, the Estonian TSO, announced that preliminary analysis showed that a short-circuit had occurred.

Representatives of Nexans, the cable company, are currently troubleshooting.

Estlink 1 is still up and running and can carry 342 MW to Estonia and 358 MW to Finland.
