Coronavirus: Up-To-Date Information

As a company operating critical infrastructure, we at transmission system operator TransnetBW stand for secure and reliable electricity supply to around eleven million people in Baden-Württemberg. In order to minimise the risk of Covid-19 infection for employees of TransnetBW, visitors as well as personnel of third-party companies, we are rigorously implementing protective measures.

The Omicron variant has added a new dimension to the pandemic. With immediate effect, access for visitors necessary for operations as well as personnel from third-party companies at our administrative offices, operational sites and the main control centre is restricted to persons who have been vaccinated or have recovered from COVID-19 (in Germany: 2G rule). At building sites, outdoor control centres as well as during on-call deployments and disruption incidents, persons must be vaccinated, recovered from COVID-19 or have a negative test result (in Germany: 3G rule).

To gain access, a certificate with a valid QR code must be produced by the person themselves. If this is not possible, entry will not be permitted.

Please also adhere to the relevant hygiene and social distancing rules: keep a safe distance from other people, wear an FFP2 mask while you are inside buildings or roofed areas, wash your hands, use the German coronavirus warning app (Corona-Warn-App), ensure good ventilation.

If you are arriving from abroad, please ensure that you meet all criteria set out in the current version of the Ordinance on Coronavirus Entry Regulations, governing requirements with regard to registration, quarantine and furnishing proof of vaccination, recovery or a negative test result. Thank you for your patience!
