Maintenance Calendar

Maintenance transport system

From 28 April 2017 up to and including 15 July 2017 there is planned maintenance in the GTS transport network. For the next network points there is a limitation of the maximum EXIT capacity:

Network point Name Maximum exit
301111 Zelzate 11 mln. kWh/h
300143 's Gravenvoeren 14 mln. kWh/h
301368 Bocholtz Vetschau 0 mln. kWh/h
300169 Bocholtz TENP 12,8 mln. kWh/h

Above mentioned capacities are firm available. Specific transport circumstances may give the possibility of allowing higher capacities than above mentioned.

Maintenance conversion installations

Planned maintenance is carried out regularly on GTS conversion installations and on the production of nitrogen. Both result in less nitrogen being available for conversion. The table attached shows the resulting reduced amount of nitrogen that is available and for what periods. The final column gives the date on which the rule concerned was last changed. A maximum of 627.000 m3(n)/h nitrogen is available.

Maintenance is planned well in advance. Operating time depending maintenance and unforeseen interruptions which take longer than a few days are also shown in the table.

In addition to the reduced availability of nitrogen shown in the table, acute and short-term faults can also lead to decreased nitrogen availability. This is not included in the table below but is notified via REMIT notifications. Actual and historical information about nitrogen usage can be requested via the Nitrogen report.

The planned start and end dates in the table are indications. All changes to the maintenance calendar will be notified via REMIT prior information notices. The actual start or end of the work will be notified via final REMIT reports. The final REMIT reports are leading. A REMIT report will be produced when the work actually starts, and another REMIT report will be produced when the work is completed.
