Nowega GmbH – We transport gasWe are a transmission network operator based in Münster and we operate and market around 1,500 kilometres of high-pressure gas pipelines. As a modern and innovative company, we ensure reliable supply in Germany and we shape the energy landscape of the future.
Nowega takes care of all tasks of a contemporary gas transporter: from supporting our customers during the registration and booking process for transport capacities, via the provision thereof, through to billing of fees and levies. We are committed to the safe operation of our infrastructure around the clock, to openness and transparency, and to services for our customers and stakeholders. We do all this will the flexibility required to swiftly and reliably master the challenges brought about by regulation and the ever-changing nature of energy markets.
Our roots lie in the early days of natural gas production in Germany. Over more than five decades, a network of pipelines has developed that connects the natural gas fields in the north of Germany with consumers. To this date, our long-distance transmission network also transports nationally produced gas volumes.
As a transmission system operator, we are subject to German and European gas market regulations. When Erdgas Münster Transport GmbH & Co KG was converted into Nowega GmbH in February 2012, we established the new company as an independent transmission system operator (ITSO) in accordance with the German Energy Industry Act (Energiewirtschaftsgesetz, EnWG). Nowega GmbH was one of the first transmission system operators in Germany to be certified as an ITSO by the Federal Network Agency in November 2012 for the unbundling of all the required lines of business in compliance with the statutory regulations.
