Consultation of Regulations of Interconnection Agreement “VIP-TTF-NCG-H” Regarding Matching, Allocation and Communication Process
According to Article 19 (9) of the Commission Regulation (EU) 2017/459 of 16 March 2017 (CAM NC) transmission system operators shall offer available capacities of interconnection points connecting the same adjacent entry-exit systems at one virtual interconnection point to provide one single capacity service as defined in Article 3 No. 23 CAM NC.
(Citation Article 19 (9) sentence 1 CAM NC for information:
“Where two or more interconnection points connect the same two adjacent entry-exit systems, the adjacent transmission system operators concerned shall offer the available capacities at the interconnection points at one virtual interconnection point.“)
By the contractual agreement between the transmission system operators regarding the virtual interconnection point “VIP-TTF-NCG-H“ also regulations will be agreed for the matching, allocation and communication process. You can find said regulations here.
Taking into account that transmission system operators have to invite network users to comment on these three topics according to Article 4 (2) of Commission Regulation (EU) 2015/703 of 30 April 2015 (INT NC), Thyssengas would like to give its network users the opportunity to provide their comments also to this designated VIP Agreement.
(Citation Article 4 (2) INT NC for information:
“Before concluding or amending an interconnection agreement which contains rules referred to in Article 3(c), (d) and (e), transmission system operators shall invite network users to comment on the proposed text of those rules at least two months before the agreement is concluded or amended. The transmission system operators shall take the network users‘ comments into account when concluding or amending their interconnection agreement.“)
