Connecting the energies of the future

GRTgaz Deutschland, a German TSO certified ITO (Independent Transmission Operator), operates the MEGAL gas pipeline which extends the GRTgaz network in Germany to the Czech Republic and Austria. This high-capacity artery fulfills a dual role: transporting gas in southern Germany and transporting it to or from France, in response to market needs. The large volumes transported contribute to the security of supply of the two countries.

GRTgaz Deutschland, recently named HTNO (Hydrogen Transmission Network Operator), is participating in the energy transition and the development of carbon-free gas transmission by getting involved with other transmission network managers in Germany in the construction of a transmission infrastructure. transport dedicated to hydrogen: the “Kernnetz”, the heart of the hydrogen transport network. By 2032, one of the two MEGAL pipelines will be converted to H2, ready to accommodate the volumes of green hydrogen from southern Europe transported via the H2Med and HyFen structures.
