Commissioning service for industry

If you are a shipper or a connected party wishing to start up a new industrial connection or expand an existing one, you can contract the commissioning service for industry.

This service allows you to give an estimate of how much capacity a new or modified industrial plant will need during the commissioning phase. The maximum period for which the commissioning phase can be contracted for is four months.

We will consider this estimate to be a provisional capacity booking and surcharges for exceeding provisional capacity will not apply. During this period the shipper or directly connected party can determine the amount of capacity actually required in future. The final booking of the capacity used during the commissioning period is determined retrospectively based on actual use. In practice this means that the highest hourly flow for each of these contracted months is used as a guideline. This highest hourly flow is then added to the contract(s) for the period(s) in question. This can be a month or a series of day bookings. The most beneficial approach is agreed in consultation between GTS, the shipper or directly connected party.
