Pipe-laying barge Fortuna left port of Mukran

Pipe-laying barge Fortuna left port of Mukran

The Fortuna pipe-laying anchor barge, which can be used to complete the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, has finally left the German port of Mukran, where it has been since the end of May and headed south-east. This is reported by monitoring resources.


As follows from the data from Marine Traffic and Myshiptracking resources, Fortuna left the Mukran logistics center, where the pipes for the construction of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline are stored. The barge is currently heading southeast.

Earlier it was reported that Denmark gave permission to the operator of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline - the company Nord Stream 2 AG - permission to use vessels with anchor positioning during the construction of the gas pipeline, which includes the Fortuna pipe-laying barge. Prior to this, Denmark prohibited the use of anchor-type vessels (“anchor” pipe layers), since it claimed that the anchor could “stumble” on ammunition that has been on the seabed since World War II.

Thus, it can be assumed that Fortuna has already gone to the place of laying the pipeline, where together with the Akademik Chersky vessel it will begin construction of the final section of the SP-2 gas pipeline. In total, about 150-160 km remain to be completed.

According to Gazprom, the end of construction is scheduled for the end of this year. It was argued that US sanctions will not affect the completion of construction.

    In general, in theory, such a system of keeping the ship in its position is much safer and more accurate.

        If it can be chemical, it can be hooked with anchors.

        In the area of ​​the Danish island of Bornholm in 1947, the Allies buried 30 thousand tons of Wehrmacht chemical munitions. Therefore, anchoring is really potentially dangerous. However, the Nord Stream 2 route was examined in detail twice - in January and May 2020. The result of the study is as follows: the part of the pipe remaining for completion passes outside the zone where anchoring and other bottom work is not recommended.
        Cod spawning is another obstacle in July and August, when any construction work in the spawning area is prohibited, as a result of which the resumption of construction may be delayed, ”RIA Novosti quoted analysts as saying. According to experts, the suspension of construction may drag on until September. Perhaps the Germans themselves asked Gazprom to wait. They are trying to lobby for changes in the text of the bill on new US sanctions against Nord Stream 2. The US bill proposes to fine not only commercial German companies, but also the state itself. https://yandex.ru/turbo/s/vz.ru/economy/2020/7/6/1048633.html

      hi So yes, but it is for pipe layers that this method is quite hemorrhoidal, because a change of position takes much longer. Now, when the deadlines are running out, this method is definitely not optimal. Therefore, “Cherskiy” will be “indigenous” in the installation, and anchor ones will be placed in the cage, on the catch.

      Yes, if you need to stand still and not move. And the pipelayer ... he puts it, so he moves. A vessel with a DP system does this automatically, and the barge ... got on a point, encircled it with anchors, laid it down I don’t know how many pipes - how much is possible, in general ... vira anchor, transition to a new point ... for a long time.

      I’m more worried - what will we buy in the EU for gas - the stray gas for oil production - oil or a ride and we will withdraw all euros, in China we will buy what we need at a cheap price. It's time to end this friendship with the Germans. SP2 should weaken the EU, or at least Eastern Europe (including reduction of purchases in the former CMEA)
      Friendship is friendship, and there are separate tablets
      and these questions are not for gas workers, but for financiers, bankers and authorities

          This is the dream of Ukrainians rotten lace panties. I can tell you myself I needed a cold installation. With outstanding performance. For the year it was designed and installed. Russian so far only pipes. The rest is from the sanctions west. Automation even from the USA. Sanctions, sanctions. 2 years ago directly worked with the Americans, they are generally ahead of the rest on this material. No delays. After two days, the material from America was in our customs office, in a city convenient for us.

            It is very strange that from the usa. That freon, that cryogenic components there are more expensive and worse than European and even other Chinese. But, your truth, it is very bad with valves and compressors in Russia, everything is exactly so.

            But, in fairness, Ukrainians need the same refrigeration units, where they need to somehow store the same cheese in a warehouse and in a store. And there, instead of a double-priced American system, they put twice a second-hand (first in Germany, then in Poland).

It’s normal for air conditioning, for production tasks for 10 years they have been making analogues with us on the basis of the same biceros (in Russia, as a rule German compressors) and Siemens PLC.

They put it everywhere on their cars. You immediately understand how we are behind and whether we will mind refrigeration engineering. And the single-shaft screw is generally a song.

            then I will answer myself - the result is known, they didn’t finish the nifig, so when a year later they started the old songs about “the end of construction is planned for the end of this year” and “US sanctions will not affect in any way” there is a lot of doubt, although even if they are completed before the end of the year We have already achieved our goal - we had to conclude a new long-term transit contract with Ukraine, and even on such enslaving conditions that Gazprom now claims that transit through Ukraine is unprofitable for him !!!

    Why are all the media silent that the only one on this barge, the welder Petrovich, has again gone into a bout?

      Minus one! They brought the country to the level of a technological gas station, and then cheerfully report it every day for a year, reporting the coordinates: "The only vessel capable of completing the Nord Stream-2 anchored! It docked there! Entered the port behind the bunker! Taken for escort by ships Russian Navy. " Now, a barge of some kind, the brains are vacuuming! You have to be closer to people. Tell us about the welders! What are you barging some kind of head on!

        Greetings! What about welders? About 4 years ago for certified welders fought, and outbid))
        Now there are many literate young people, recently I was at the ZIO, so there was a flock of about ten, about 25 years old. We learned how to cook with a mirror (tight layout of the economizer, all bundles of pipes nearby and with access not so hot).
        So specifically in Russia, the situation with techies is improving.

      Exactly. There are many factors. -There is no hurry: a) there is a lot of gas (taking into account 65 this year and 45 in the 21st in Ukraine), it is still cheap (in Austria - 65 (already at a loss), in the other three EU hubs - there are still more losses) b ) July-August - a ban on work due to cod spawning c) support vessels did not all come up (emnip, Sheremeta must be understaffed in Kalin-de); c) Merkel tries to negotiate with Trump (or does not try) under sanctions, t .to. even with the complete completion by our remaining part of the existing sanctions, the ground part of the Germans (only them) could not be completed and put into operation)
      Well, and in the current situation, cn-1 today, at the rates of the third energy package, it pumps 100% only with Evagal (even more, 57 at the rate of 55), BUT Evgal is built for SP-2 and by the launch of SP-2 we will swing on TWO threads ( while maintaining the status quo) - the same 55 billion cubic meters in total.
      What can change - the EU will instantly (this has already happened) push everything and resolve it during the cold winter, but for us it is already 21-22 winter (I don’t remember how many there should be to expel by 22 under the contract in Ukraine). Indeed, in Ukraine, a “download or pay” contract, i.e. for this year we’ll pump just 30-40, and pay for 65, and the price of transportation has grown so much that we will pay more in five years than in the past 90 under the old contract .....
      Py.Sy. For the first quarter of 2020, 17 top Gazprom managers with a total corporate loss of 306 billion rubles (RAS) paid bonuses of 557 million rubles .... "dreams come true" ...
