Pipelayer Fortuna completes work on Nord Stream 2 in the German EEZ

The pipe-laying vessel Fortuna left the area of Nord Stream 2 in the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) of Germany and headed to the port of Wismar on the night from Friday to Saturday, Angi reports.

Fortuna has been laying the pipeline in the German EEZ since December 11. It was planned to build 2.6 km of pipe along each line of in waters less than 30 m (100 ft) deep. The notice of work was valid from 5 to 31 December. The trajectory of Fortuna's movement at a deficient speed along the gas pipeline route may indeed indicate pipe-laying.

According to the Danish Maritime Agency, Fortuna can begin work on laying Nord Stream 2 in Denmark's exclusive economic zone on January 15.

More than 2300 km (i.e. 94%) of the approximately 2,460 km of the gas pipeline have been laid to date.

To recap, the construction of Nord Stream 2 will be resumed in January.

As reported, Fortuna continued work on the construction of Nord Stream 2.
