Additional information about maintenance works on Austrian transmission system in October 2019
Transmission system operator Plinovodi d.o.o. additionally informs network users that Austrian transmission system operators Gas Connect Austria GmbH (GCA) in Trans Austria Gasleitung GmbH (TAG) have published the list of planned maintenance works and reduction of capacities at relevant points caused by maintenance works on Austrian transmission pipeline TAG and SOL. Because of mentioned planned maintenance works the transport in Austrian transmission system and on Austrian border point Murfeld-Exit will be reduced.
From published data about reductions of transmission capacities in Austrian transmission system it is evident that main transmission limitations at interconnection point Murfeld/Ceršak will be in period from 4th October 2019 (6:00) to 14th October 2019 (18:00), where GCA published 100% reduction of firm capacities on point Murfeld-Exit and publishes available capacity up to 41% of technical capacity Murfeld-Exit. Information about reductions is published also on web pages of Plinovodi d.o.o. in the area “Planned maintenance”. On 14th June, 2019, we informed each of the Balance group leaders about the works on the Austrian transmission system by special message.
Balancing group leaders (network users) are asked to consider the information about reductions of transmission capacities in their nominations for interconnection point Murfeld/Ceršak and match the quantity with their suppliers on Austrian side of interconnection point. For additional information about availability of capacities and its utilisation at Murfeld-Exit we suggest to Balancing group leaders to contact the GCA in due time. All Balancing group leaders are also asked to ensure that their total daily nominated quantities at exit points are balanced with their total daily nominated quantities at entry points also for mentioned reduction periods.
