Nord Stream 2 AG has received German permit from BSH for the construction and operation of the remaining 30 kilometers of the pipeline system.
The Stralsund Mining Authority had previously approved the construction and operation in German territorial waters of approximately 55 kilometer-long section of the pipeline.
Jens Lange, permitting manager Germany at Nord Stream 2 AG, said: “We are pleased that all necessary permits are now in place for the German route section, which has an overall length of 85 kilometers.”
The national permitting procedures in the other four countries along the route – Russia, Finland, Sweden and Denmark – are proceeding as planned, the company noted.
Further permits are expected to be issued in the coming months.
