Capacity Management

Capacity Strategies


An essential part of the capacity management process is the advance planning, of which the first element is the Capacity Strategy. The Capacity Strategy is a written document created by each IM, which sets down the general principles to be used further in the capacity planning and capacity allocation process. Moreover, it includes the expected available capacity and first rough analysis of future traffic flows. The Capacity Strategies are published three years prior to the timetable change. However, in the first years of the TTR setup timelines might shift.

RNE and its members define common timelines for advance capacity planning (ACP) purposes. The ACP calendar lays down the relevant milestones for defining and publishing Capacity Strategies, as well. In order to ensure the consistent involvement of Applicants, competent authorities, terminals and service facilities into the definition of Capacity Strategies, the common deadlines for input gathering are also set in the agreed ACP calendars.
