Cloud-based Gas Storage Management System for Denmark

| minutes read

Sopra Steria has implemented a new, state-of-the-art storage management and processing system on the cpX.Energy cloud platform for Gas Storage Denmark (GSD). 
The new storage system will allow GSD to process more individual products in addition to the existing products. In addition to allocating interruptible capacity through over-nomination, GSD will be able to offer interruptible capacity in pre-defined priority for interruptible and other non-standard products. 
In the new storage system, GSD also covers the hourly processes in commercial dispatching. For this purpose, the storage solution was not only converted to cloud operation, but also expanded to include the following aspects: 

  • Nomination & Matching 

  • Storage specific congestion management 

  • Technical market communication in EDIGAS 

  • Connection to communication partner via AS4 

  • Integrated customer web portal with master data and transaction data information as well as self-service portlets for storage bookings and trading transactions (commodity and capacity transfer) 

Gas Storage Denmark manages Denmark's two underground gas storage facilities – the Stenlille pore storage facility and the Lille Torup salt cavern facility in North Jutland. The total working gas volume of the two storage facilities is around 10 TWh. 
The storage operator is a wholly owned subsidiary of the state-owned company Energinet. The company owns and operates the gas and electricity infrastructure in Denmark.
