Commissioning service for industry

If you are a shipper or a party with a direct connection to the grid and you hope to start a new industrial connection or to expand an existing one, you contract the commisioning service for industry.

This service allows you to give an estimate of how much capacity a new or modified industrial plant will need in the commissioning phase. The maximum period the service can be contracted for is four months.  It is not possible to contract the commissioning service for industry during the winter months.

We will treat this estimate as a provisional booking and surcharges for exceeding capacity willnot apply. During this period the shipper or connected party can determine the amount of capacity actually required. The final booking of the capacity used during the commisioning period is determine ex post based on actual use. In practice this means that the highest hourly flow for each month the service is contracted for is used as normative for that month. The highest hourly flow is then added to the contract(s) for the period(s) in question. This can be a month or series of day bookings. The most beneficial approach is agreed in consultation between GTS, the shipper or industry.
