Trayport, the leading supplier of multi-asset-class electronic
trading systems, today announced its continued growth through the signing of its 50th
client, Trianel European Energy Trading GmbH. Trianel provides solutions for energy
procurement and marketing, as well as energy and emissions trading and has purchased
Trayport’s GlobalVision Trading Gateway system.


“We chose Trayport because its GlobalVision solution gives us market clarity and
enables us to expand our trading strategies across Pan-European markets. We are also
able to simplify and improve efficiency in key trading processes, such as STP, into this
core, flexible system,” says Dr. Alexander Kox, Head of Power Trading, Trianel. “For any
trading organisation it is important to have confidence in your partners and we believe
that Trayport’s success indicates they understand what our market needs.”
“Reaching the milestone of our 50th client is an important step in Trayport’s growth and
we are delighted to mark this occasion by welcoming Trianel,” says Elliott Piggott,
Commercial Director at Trayport. “Trianel’s adoption of Trading Gateway highlights the
continued trend in European organisations adopting advanced trading strategies and the
competitive advantages to be gained through the use of GlobalVision.”

announcing new hires across its client service and sales and teams. Andrew Abbotsford-
