PRISMA European Capacity Platform GmbH

TRAC-X Transport Capacity Exchange GmbH (TRAC-X) was founded in 2005 in Leipzig and has, since that time, grown consistently to become one of the most important online market places for gas transport capacity. In 2010, the German transport system operators appointed TRAC-X to create and operate a platform for the awarding of primary transport capacities in Germany. With the start of TRAC-X primary in August 2011, transport customers can, for the first time, use TRAC-X primary auctions to acquire capacities for market area and cross-border interconnection points. Capacities at other network points can be purchased through TRAC-X primary on a "first come, first served" basis. By offering a single market place for primary capacity, TRAC-X replaces the established online booking systems of the German TSOs. At the same time, TRAC-X still continues to operate the trading platform for secondary transport capacity - TRAC-X secondary. By doing so, TRAC-X contributes significantly to the simplification of gas trading.
