The offshore installation barge Castoro 10 (C10) has started preparatory works for future pipelaying for the Nord Stream 2 project.

Nord Stream 2 pipelaying preparatory works underway

The C10 assumed its starting position with the help of its eight anchors in the shallow waters of Lubmin. 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 continue. Five excavators are currently working on the 29 km long pipe trench.

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