LUBMIN, Germany – Saipem’s offshore installation barge Castoro 10 has started preparatory works for future pipelaying for the Nord Stream 2 project in the Baltic Sea.

TheC10 assumed its starting position assisted by eight anchors in the shallow waters offshore Lubmin, northern Germany.

During operations, pipe segments will be welded together on board the vessel and pulled ashore by a winch to connect the landfall facilities of Nord Stream 2 with the new offshore pipeline.

Simultaneously, preparations continue for the subsequent pipelay in the Bay of Greifswald. Five excavators are currently working on the 29-km (18-mi) long pipe trench.

Nord Stream AG expects construction in the Bay of Greifswald to be completed by year-end.
