Tender invitation for the provision of balancing services February 2020

NetConnect Germany GmbH & Co. KG (NCG) is again inviting bids for the provision of balancing services in February 2020 in order to meet its long-term balancing requirements in the multi-quality market area of NCG, with bids being requested for the supply of gas by providers (SystemBUY) on a ‘Rest-of-the-Day’ basis (product variant ‘RoD’) under the ‘Long-Term Options’ (LTO) balancing product. Please note that this is a supplemental tender invitation conducted on the grounds that we have not been able to meet our balancing requirements in the low CV zones for the month February 2020 during our initial tendering exercise for this period (bidding period from 22 October 2019 to 7 November 2019) due to provider data entry errors made in the bid placement process.
