Pipe-laying barge "Fortuna" began completion of the German section of "Nord Stream - 2"

62

Pipe-laying barge Fortuna continued laying gas pipeline pipes in German waters. This was reported by the press service of the company - operator Nord Stream 2 AG.


Fortuna has begun laying a two-kilometer section of the gas pipeline in the exclusive economic zone of Germany, which was opposed by German environmentalists. Earlier, the Federal Office for Shipping and Hydrography of Germany ordered the immediate execution of the construction permit for this section. The work was to begin at the end of May.

Thus, "Fortuna" must lay the remaining pipes on the site while the permit is valid, and it is valid until September.

Meanwhile, according to some media reports, Fortuna has already fully completed the laying of line B of the gas pipeline in Danish waters and has moved to the German economic zone to complete the remaining section. It remains to lay a little more than 13 km to the "golden junction", after which the construction of line B will be completed.

It is emphasized that "Fortuna" runs at a maximum speed of 1500 meters of pipes per day, if the weather remains favorable, the string can be laid by the beginning of June. The barge is escorted by nine vessels, four of which provide security, five are engaged in the delivery of pipes and necessary equipment.

The second pipelayer, Akademik Chersky, is laying pipes on line A. Today, he has about 78 km to go, the work is scheduled to be completed in September.

    Finally out of Danish waters!
    And then the Danes, at the request of mattresses, then diarrhea (spawning), then scrofula (ecologists)!
    Now Chersky still needs to accelerate ...

    "Akademik Chersky" is laying pipes on line A. Today it has about 78 km to go, the work is scheduled to be completed in September.

    Chersky walks slowly. 500 m per day, although maybe 2000 under favorable conditions.

      The depth is great, the "tail" is too heavy. And the dimensions of Chersky are smaller than those of Fortuna.

      The question is WHAT are "favorable conditions" ?! It's not only weather, but also depth (at the place of laying), relief bottom, etc. etc. ...
      So, what I think, "Chersky" comes with the greatest possible speed! It is unlikely that anyone there is "phony" - everyone understands that it is necessary to finish quickly, until again "the wind has not changed"!

    Judging by the track of movement, "Fortuna" should finish these two kilometers "permitted" in German waters already today. It is important, will they go on immediately, or will they stop again? And will "Fortune" be on string A to finish it "in two hands", going towards "Chersky"?

      That is unlikely. Now the end of the pipe is in shallow water. And if you go to the meeting, then the joint would have to be done at a depth. Raise two tails several tens of meters each, connect, then lower to the bottom, i.e. make a bend (arc or S-shaped) for these same tens of meters. The shallower the depth, the less this bend will have to be done.

      Most likely, it will slow down for a week - "From the end of May, it will be allowed to continue construction of Nord Stream 2 in accordance with the current permit regulation. In March 2018, Nord Stream 2 received a permanent permit to lay the pipeline from late May to late September" (press -service BSH). Walking there ... here .... raise the pipe, lower it all this time .... and then there are schedules that are coordinated, who, where what, when and their changes need to be coordinated .... It was 13 km. 11 will remain - let it be 2 weeks ... maybe two months for purging, testing, filling ... let's see (SP-1 1 branch on August 18, golden joint, put into operation on November 8)

    The Americans already admit that it will not be possible to prevent the completion of the construction, but in this case they have a plan B in reserve - to harm (slow down), harm and harm the launch of gas through the pipeline, or try to establish full control over the volume of gas supplies in the future.

      Welcome.


      After the end of the line To Fortuna, it will be necessary to launch to the meeting with Chersky. I hope the top managers have enough brains for that.

      I don’t think. There is a problem at the joint: since the pipes are joined on the surface, the pipeline has extra meters, when lowering it, you have to lay it with a bend, the letter S. The greater the depth, the greater the bend. This is not good for the pipeline.

      Therefore, I support the opinion that "Chersky" will lay the deep-water section, which the "Fortuna" cannot build, "will drop" the pipe and the "Fortuna" will fly further.

And for us, that is. the people from the "national wealth" compensation for losses and operating expenses in the form of growing payments and tariffs.

    If "Fortuna" gained the speed of laying the pipeline of 1,2 km per day and at such a rate the barge can complete the remaining 12,5 km of the gas line "B", then the "Academician Chersky" 2 km per day, its current daily speed does not exceed 500 meters on average. Moreover, there is conflicting information about the stoppage of the pipelayer: according to one source, lawyers of Gazprom and the Nord Stream 2 operator are assessing the consequences of the next US sanctions; on others, the crew is being replaced, and repair work is being carried out on the ship itself. The latest version is supported by the fact that the multifunctional vessel Artemis Offshore, which can carry spare parts and a new team of builders, urgently moved from Kaliningrad to Chersky.
