The Nord Stream 2 Pipelaying Preparatory Works Started in Germany

The offshore installation barge “Castoro 10” (C10) has started preparatory works for future pipelaying for the Nord Stream 2 project at the German shore.

On 24 July, the C10 assumed its starting position with the help of its eight anchors in the shallow waters of Lubmin. Pipe segments are welded together on board the vessel and pulled ashore by a high-performance winch, to connect the landfall facilities of Nord Stream 2 with the new offshore pipeline.

Simultaneously, preparatory works for the subsequent pipelaying continue in the Bay of Greifswald. Five excavators are currently working on the 29-kilometer long pipe trench. Nord Stream 2 expects to complete works in the Bay of Greifswald by the end of this year.
