New gas transport service increases Tyrol's security of supply
The "Trading Region Upgrade Do It Yourself" (TRUD!Y) service will be extended by the "Überackern-Tyrol" module as of November 15, 2022. By expanding capacities on the German side, it has been possible to bring the Central European Gas Hub (CEGH) closer to the Tyrol market area. The new, innovative service was developed by the European transmission system operators Gas Connect Austria and bayernets.
In light of the current discussions about security of supply in Western Austria, the preparations for TRUD!Y, which have been ongoing for some time, could be used precisely and at the right time to enable additional flexibility and security for the gas supply in Tyrol: With additional capacities of around 250 MWh/h of type DZK "Dynamically Allocable Capacity" on the German side at the Überackern entry point and at the Kiefersfelden/Pfronten exit point, gas transport in this order of magnitude is now also possible coming from Austria from the CEGH and is available on a firm basis for flexible booking.
In bundled capacity auctions by bayernets and Gas Connect Austria at the Überackern/Überackern ABG point, these capacities will be available for gas transports from Austria to Germany from November 15, 2022.
The following figure illustrates the possible transport routes with TRUD!Y at a glance:
Customized solutions - Do It Yourself
With TRUD!Y, Gas Connect Austria and bayernets will give market participants a tool with which they can individually put together guaranteed/firm transports coming from CEGH depending on their bookings and nominations. The flexible new service enables customers to tailor transport solutions precisely to their needs. This makes gas transports more efficient and reduces transaction costs. This is possible above all by the new DZK product at the interconnection point Überackern, which creates additional firm/guaranteed capacities.
