Pipe-Laying Vessels with Anchors May Be Used for Nord Stream 2 Construction

The Danish Energy Agency has at the request of Nord Stream 2 AG company permitted the use of pipelaying vessels with anchors in connection with construction of the Nord Stream 2 pipelines.

This decision changes the construction permit for the Nord Stream 2 pipelines, granted by the Danish Energy Agency on 30 October, 2019. The change means that the company can use pipe-laying vessels with anchors, either independently or in combination with DP pipe-laying vessels.

In the decision, the Danish Energy Agency emphasized that the remaining part of the pipelines to be constructed in Denmark is outside the area where bottom trawling, anchoring and seabed intervention are discouraged due to the risk posed by dumped chemical warfare agents.
