Construction of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline resumed in Denmark

Denmark has resumed the construction of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline section. The country has received a schedule of works in its waters. The vessel “Baltic Explorer” returned to the construction zone. The second pipe-laying vessel “Fortuna” left the port of Wismar. The pipeline capacity is 55 billion cubic meters per year. The project will connect the coasts of Russia and Germany along the Baltic Sea bed.

According to some media, the pipeline “Nord Stream – 2” is planned to be completed in June 2021. In May the pipeline will be laid in the territorial waters of Denmark. Then in June the final phase of construction off the coast of Germany will be held. The U.S. has regularly interfered in the construction of Nord Stream 2. Earlier, the Swiss contractor left the project because of the Washington sanctions. A replacement was quickly found, and work continues as usual.
