In accordance with the legislative amendments to the German Gas Network Access Ordinance (GasNZV) adopted in 2017, the two German market areas of NetConnect Germany GmbH & Co. KG and GASPOOL Balancing Services GmbH will be merged into one market area by 1 April 2022 at the latest. The new market area will be called Trading Hub Europe (THE) – a market area with 15 transmission networks, approximately 750 downstream networks and more than 15,000 balancing groups and sub-balancing accounts. Both market area managers use the GAS-X module BKN for central processes and billing processes as well as for the data presentation in the respective portals.
Sopra Steria supports both market area managers in standardising and integrating the existing GAS-X systems and business processes into the GAS-X system for Trading Hub Europe. The beginning of 2021 marks the start of the crucial project phase, in which the systems will be intensively tested, and final requirements will be implemented. This will ensure Sopra Steria’s on-time provision of communication data processing, billing and portals for the new market area.
