Farewell from GASPOOL

Berlin. GASPOOL Balancing Services GmbH would like to thank all its customers, the Federal Network Agency, the associations, service providers and shareholders for the many years of good cooperation. All GASPOOL employees are bidding a friendly “farewell” and looking forward to future collaboration as Trading Hub Europe GmbH. Until 30 September 2021, the GASPOOL market area and the Virtuell Trading Hub will operate under the THE umbrella.

It was back in 2009 that initially five German transmission system operators joined forces to form GASPOOL, a company that was to take full charge of balancing group management, VTP operation and system balancing. In the years that followed, over 50 employees worked to ensure that the market area and the VTP continued to function seamlessly around the clock. Over the last 12 years, GASPOOL has proven itself as a reliable partner, built up a liquid trading point in the gas market, and initiated and helped shape important industry developments. This commitment and spirit will endure among the employees of GASPOOL within Trading Hub Europe, too, as they work with colleagues from NetConnect Germany to shape the nationwide market area. The market can continue to rely on us.

GASPOOL and its staff have seen some exciting years in the European gas market, and no doubt there are more exciting years with many more changes still to come. We look forward to working with you again as Trading Hub Europe!
