The offshore installation barge ‘Castoro 10’ (C10) has started preparatory works for Nord Stream 2 pipelaying in the Baltic Sea.

The C10 assumed its starting position with the help of its eight anchors in the shallow waters of Lubmin, Germany.

During operations, 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, in the Bay of Greifswald in Germany continue.

Five excavators are currently working on the 29-kilometer long pipe trench, Nord Stream 2 AG said.

Nord Stream 2 expects to complete construction works in the Bay of Greifswald by the end of this year.

Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline will have an aggregate annual capacity of 55 billion cubic meters, and will be laid from Russia to Germany via the Baltic Sea.
