The installation of Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline is moving forward with a total of 1,000 kilometers now laid in Finnish, Swedish and German waters. 

Two Allseas pipelay vessels, Solitaire and Pioneering Spirit, are currently installing the pipeline in the Swedish Exclusive Economic Zone.

Some twenty vessels are currently being engaged in the project in the Baltic Sea, with nearly 1,300 people working on board the pipelay, pipe supply and survey vessels, Nord Stream 2 AG said.

In addition, last week the project’s coating and logistics contractor Wasco completed concrete weight coating of its share of the steel pipes in its plant in Kotka, Finland, where approximately 101,000 steel pipes had been coated. This corresponds to half of the pipes needed for the twin pipelines.

Nord Stream 2 is a twin pipeline stretching 1,200 km through the Baltic Sea. Each line will comprise around 100,000 individual pipes, each 12 meters in length.
