Energy Infrastructure Partners successfully acquired a stake in FluxSwiss in 2016, alongside Fluxys and Swissgas as industrial partners. FluxSwiss is the largest transmission system operator of the Transitgas / FluxSwiss pipeline, commercializing 90% of the pipeline’s total capacity. It also holds a 46% share in the pipeline asset company, Transitgas AG.
The pipeline is a key trans-alpine link between Northern Europe and Italy. It plays a major role in securing flexible, reliable gas supply in Italy and Switzerland while arbitraging price differences between markets. The pipeline was originally commissioned in 1974 and has been significantly expanded and refurbished since then.
