According to the announcement, with the arrival of the ship Pioneering Spirit, the stage of laying the deepwater section of the gas pipeline in the exclusive economic zone of Finland will begin. The vessel is currently going to one of the ports of Denmark, where it will spend several days for mobilization work, after which it will proceed to the Baltic Sea and join the vessels already leading the construction of the gas pipeline. Previously, the ship Pioneering Spirit, owned by the Swiss company Allseas, was engaged in laying pipes of the Turkish Stream.
Currently, the laying of the Nord Stream-2 is also carried out by two vessels owned by the Swiss company. One works in shallow water in Germany, the second - in the waters of Finland. At the beginning of November this year, 300 km of the gas pipeline were laid. Completion is scheduled for the end of 2019.
Earlier it was reported that the US Congress voted to oppose the construction of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline.
