World’s biggest construction ship to start laying Nord Stream 2 pipes next week

Moscow, Dec 12 (IEBusiness) The world’s largest construction vessel, Pioneering Spirit, will begin laying pipes for the Nord Stream 2 project in the Finnish exclusive economic zone next week, Nord Stream 2 AG said in a statement on Wednesday.

“Pipelay vessel ‘Pioneering Spirit’ will enter the Baltic Sea via the Great Belt Bridge in Denmark to join the Nord Stream 2 construction fleet. The vessel is due to start pipelay in the Finnish Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) in the coming week … The vessel will be mobilised in Denmark for a few days, after which it will continue its journey to the Finnish EEZ to continue pipelay of the first line,” Sputnik said in a report.

Nord Stream 2 is a joint venture of Russian gas giant Gazprom and five European companies. It aims to deliver 55 billion cubic meters (1.9 trillion cubic feet) of Russian natural gas annually to the European Union via the Baltic Sea and Germany, and is expected to be put into operation by the end of 2019. The pipeline project has been welcomed by some countries in Europe and opposed by others that feel it might increase their dependence on Russian gas.
