A Danish naval patrol ship was maneuvering near the Akademik Chersky pipe-laying ship for about three hours

65

There are reports that a Royal Danish Navy patrol ship was approaching a vessel that is building the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline. We are talking about the pipe-laying vessel Akademik Chersky, which is located on the route of the gas pipeline construction in the Baltic Sea.


According to recent reports, the Danish Diana-class patrol ship HDMS Freja was approaching the pipelayer southeast of Bornholm Island. At the same time, initially the patrol ship approached the Akademik Chersky and several supply vessels at the moment when they were waiting out the storm.

At the closest point at the moment of approach, the distance between "Freya" and "Akademik Chersky" was no more than 2 nautical miles.



At the same time, the distance closer to which it is prohibited to approach the pipelayer is 1,5 nautical miles (documented). And to the Russian supply vessel "Ivan Sidorenko" the distance from "Freya" was about 300-400 m.

The Danish patrol ship Freja performed maneuvers near the Russian ships for about three hours.

For reference: Danish Diana-class patrol ships have a displacement of about 250 tons. The maximum speed is 25 knots. Armament - two large-caliber machine guns. In total, the Danish royal navy six such ships. Designed primarily for patrolling the Danish maritime borders and neutralizing naval munitions.

Recall that earlier the operator of the gas pipeline under construction noted the high activity of warships of NATO countries on the route of the construction of the facility. The appearance of a submarine was also indicated. The most active were Polish ships.

    Where is the pipelayer located? In or near Danish terrain? In that case, hello to the Danes. They are in their own right, especially since there are no violations. Politely approached and looked, without interfering with work.

      Maybe they were preparing to provide assistance in case of emergency. There was a storm. And Denmark seems to be interested in laying a pipe?

        It is clear to everyone that the construction of the joint venture will be completed in 2021. Moreover, the longer the water in Germany.

            I was especially interested in this issue: in Internet I found several maps with the route of the gas pipeline. Just in the area of ​​Bornholm Island, the gas pipeline route passes through tterritorial waters of Denmark. And right now - it is there that the work is going on now. In general, it is interesting there: Bornholm is so close to the coast of Germany that the territorial waters of Germany and Denmark are almost closed there. There was an idea to bypass Danish waters (when Denmark "turned its nose"), but they decided that it was too expensive.
            Unfortunately, I cannot give links to sites - I did not write them down. But you can search for yourself - there are quite a few maps.

              That's just it, that there are a lot of them in the internet, and all are different. Perhaps the most plausible of them is the one on the SP-2 website, and even then doubts are plagued by doubts. However, you can do without a pipeline map. Let's go from the other side, namely from the side of marinetraffic.com. And he will tell us that at the time of 2021-04-08 23:19 UTC Chersky was at the point with coordinates 54.86413 ° / 15.39892 °, his speed is slightly more than 0.1 knot, and he is in a state of "limited maneuvering". Perhaps right now he is laying another pipe. The distance to the nearest coast is just over 24 km.



              The territorial waters, as everyone knows, ends at a distance of 12 nautical miles from the "low tide line", well, and other conventions are present there, and a nautical mile is equal to 1862 meters. Denmark did not announce any special rules for counting territorial waters, so we consider: 12 x 1862 = 22344 m.
              It turns out that Chersky is outside the territorial waters. Perhaps the Danish patrol just wanted to make sure that Chersky had not inadvertently crossed the sea border.

                So be it, see the pipeline route map taken from nord-stream2.com. I think this should be an official route approved by all contracting parties. The map is clickable.



                As you can see, the pipeline delicately avoids Danish territorial waters.

                  Alas! These data are from sources in 2019: then Denmark "pulled rubber" with the issuance of a building permit in its territorial waters. It was then that the idea arose to bypass them ...
                  The map shows the main and "bypass" options for the route:

                  However, in the fall of 20, the Danes were still "put the squeeze" on them and they signed a permit. It was decided not to change the route, since it: a) - increases the length of the pipe; b) - requires expensive and time-consuming research of the bottom.
                  Information from December 2020:
                  "...According to Nord Stream 2, more than 2300 km of Nord Stream 2 pipes out of 2460 km have been laid today. Most of the 160-kilometer unfinished section lies in territorial waters Denmark, which has already issued permits for its construction and operation ...".

                    In a day, Chersky moved just a tiny amount to the south-south-west - he was clearly busy laying pipes. Here is the relative position of the two labels



                    Fortune is 25 miles away and does not move at all.



                    Distance to shore on the shortest straight line of 13.3 miles - although not much, but outside territorial waters.

              The map you provided is dated 2019, when the option of bypassing Danish territorial waters was considered (due to the delay in issuing a building permit by the Danes). But the Danes still gave permission and construction is going on in the territorial waters of Denmark (see comment above).

                  I didn’t see any planes either, but a couple of helicopter carriers with turntables wobbling back and forth, yes. This is in addition to other ships, full of them there. Even the Polish submarine (which is German) also sawed somewhere. I was there in September-November.
                  So the fact that some Danish patrol was hanging out next to ours, and even without breaking the distance, is news, sucked from the finger, like the whole article.

                Three times during the flight on my watch, the Danes in a helicopter, after asking permission, practiced the disembarkation of a medic for assistance and evacuation. And when passing through the straits, the coast guard often follows for a while, I think, checking if there are any spots from fuel and lubricants. There have never been any problems.

          Well, you can't hear panicky screams from Denmark, so they allowed it. They will scream Poland (which did not get a piece of the pipe) and Wnau, which, you understand ..

            Denmark spent as long as possible until the Federal Republic of Germany pressed on her bladder ... Now she frowned, but is silent ...
            Screaming Poland (which did not get a piece of pipe) and Wnau

            Of course you will scream when the United States was built on your territory for $ 20 billion. a hub for their own LNG and the Panamas from this should have dripped a lot of money ...
            Similarly, Vna-u, which, when laying the SP-2, will lose transit and compensation for pumping gas through its territory. No transit, no payment. And this is 3 lard of greenery a year! Quite good for a rotten pipe!

          Did they allow work to be carried out there then?

          this does not matter in the case of warships of another country, so our Navy will not be able to accompany the construction in any way

            Or vice versa, in the case of escorting the construction of the Russian Navy - permission is optional))

              funny, especially in the Baltic, especially off the coast of Denmark and Germany, the fleet will be destroyed very quickly, so our Navy will not be there, and the pipe will be if Ze and Co. do not start a war in Donbass

        And what, the passage of ships is prohibited? There, this zone is joined with the Polish one without a gap and anyone can swim; these are not tervoda.

      Not an obvious military threat.

    Armament - two large-caliber machine guns.


    And next to the pipelayer, as an option, our diesel submarine quietly sits peacefully under water.

    Even there, ours will be able to stand up for themselves ... And the supply vessels, most likely, are of the icebreaking type, which means they will pass across this "Goddess of Fertility", if something ... does not notice ..

    Completion of the Nord Stream pipeline to Germany is a terrible blow for the United States and the withdrawal of Germany from its influence .. They will use everything for this and no longer know how else to prevent Undermining? ... Rumor has it that they are ready to surrender Ukraine to Russia, if only this pipeline is not completed!
    So we go the right way. hi

    As it is not heard about the results of laying the SP-2 this spring. Earlier they wrote that "Fortuna" lays up to 0.5 km of pipes a day. Those. 10-15 km should be laid per month? And in fact?

      There was a note in the topic
      As a reminder, Fortuna resumed laying the SP-2 pipes in Danish waters on February 6, but due to storms the vessel had been out of work for almost three weeks. In just two months, the vessel laid about 31 km of the gas pipeline
