Gasunie transport services B.V.
Gasunie transport services B.V. is owner of the national grid and a wholly owned subsidiary of N.V. Nederlandse Gasunie, but we perform our activities independently as required by law. GTS has its own management board. As national transmission system operator we are responsible for the management, the operation and the development of the national transmission grid on an economic basis. It ensures sufficient transport capacity, balances the grid and creates/maintains connections to other grids. The Gas Act invests us with a number of statutory tasks that serve the public interest. For example we are responsible for maintaining gas supply levels to small-scale users (households, large buildings and small industrial customers) at temperatures of - 9°C or lower. We are responsible ourselves for contracting the necessary volume and capacity. We also have a duty to intervene if a supplier defaults on the supply of gas to small-scale users. In such cases we must oversee any corrective measures as smoothly as possible – if necessary by taking over the supply temporarily – so that the small-scale users concerned can switch to another supplier as quickly as possible in line with the accepted procedure. Finally, we ensure that gas from the small fields can be taken up in the gas transmission system. For more information, visit https://www.gasunietransportservices.nl/en
