The natural gas transport network at the heart of Europe is to be made more robust and flexible: The new European Gas Pipeline Link (EUGAL) reliably strengthens the supply of natural gas to Germany and Europe. It extends over a length of some 480 kilometers, running from the Baltic Sea through Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and Brandenburg to southern Saxony and from there over the border to the Czech Republic.

Natural gas started flowing through the first string of EUGAL at the beginning of 2020.
