The evolution of an ensemble of intense vortices in the β-plane is numerically simulated. In the process of evolution, vortices interact either directly or by means of the Rossby waves emitted by them. We show that the mean displacements of vortices of the ensemble along the meridian and, as a result, their energy losses are lower than for the isolated vortices evolving in the β-plane. This means that they are more stable than the isolated vortices. In addition, for vortices in the ensemble, the theoretical dependence of the energy of a vortex on its displacement from the initial latitude obtained for the motion of an intense isolated vortex in the β-plane is in good agreement with the experimental data.
