Underwater demining device found near the Nord Stream gas pipeline

65
An abandoned deserted underwater mine clearance device (ROV) was discovered in international waters south of the Swedish island of Gotland near the Nord Stream gas pipeline, reports Look with reference to the representative of the Armed Forces of Sweden Jesper Stolpe.




“According to Nord Stream, this is a one-time ROV, remotely controlled vehicle. Such devices are used to deactivate old mines, and the device itself also explodes at the same time, ”Stolpe said after talking with the pipeline management company.

The device was discovered by Nord Stream AG officers during the inspection of the pipeline, they reported the find to the Swedish military.

According to Stolpe, “such vehicles are used by the military of many countries involved in demining in the Baltic Sea, therefore, it is impossible to say now who owns it.”

“At the moment, the facility does not pose a danger to either the gas pipeline or the sea traffic in the area. But an explosive device can be a potential danger if it is mistreated, ”the official said, adding that military experts“ rule out the possibility of sabotage. ”

“Nord Stream asked us for assistance, advice and assistance in removing the object,” said Stolpe. According to him, military experts will help, however, "the decision on what to do with the device can be made no earlier than Monday."

    The interests of the United States and Europe regarding the supply of gas from Russia are directly opposite. It was just a study of the approaches. Explode at the right time. In the meantime, just a hint, a warning.

        In the morning, colleague, the thought arises that whoever seeks will always find something. Now no one will say what the Swedes were looking for in vain or the bad "marine search engines" in the deep sea, and that this is not our submarine does not really matter to them, they found it! laughing

          Having received the F101 certificate for the operation of an offshore gas pipeline, Nord Stream has committed itself to improving the integrity of the gas pipeline throughout its life. An example of the principle of dynamic integrity control is the frequency of internal and external gas pipeline inspections in accordance with the requirements of DNV in the next few years. In the early years of operation, inspections are carried out annually. Each year, the results are compared with the results of the previous year, and if the stable state of the gas pipeline is confirmed within two to three years, inspections will be less frequent.

        It seems that a completely fresh "loss".
        Here in the copper, the State Department expressed "concern" that Nord Stream-2 would leave Durkain without 2 billion greenery for gas transit (who will feed Svidomo?).
        So they hinted by this device that the Ukrainian transit will be more reliable.
        Probably it is necessary to dig a dozen holes in the Ukrainian pipe as an alaverda - they say there are no guarantees at all.

The CIA worked such dirty tricks in the Berengov Sea, in the Pacific Ocean, when they found the K-129 missile carrier, they can slowly work in the Sargasso Sea, where the K-219 sank. There is nothing holy for them. they sniffed that our reconnaissance ship passed along the coast of the USA. And it was, besides the Gulf of Mexico, in the Sargasso Sea where our missile carrier sank.

        The search for the K-129 submarine continued for 73 days. After their completion, the relatives and friends of all crew members received a funeral with a cynical record "recognized as dead." It seems that they forgot about 98 submariners. And the Commander-in-Chief of the USSR Navy S. G. Gorshkov made an unprecedented statement, refusing to acknowledge the death of the submarine and the entire crew. The official refusal of the USSR government from the sunken K-129 led to the fact that it became "orphaned property", so any country that discovered the missing submarine would be considered its owner (which the United States used). And of course, everything inside the submarine. If you consider that in those days, all submarines going on a hike from the shores of the USSR, the number was painted over, then if a K-129 were found, it would not even have identification marks.

        For them there is nothing holy.
        The bodies of the six dead submariners were removed from the bow of the ship and buried with honors at sea according to the ritual adopted by the Soviet Navy. The sarcophagus with the bodies was covered with the flag of the Navy of the USSR and lowered into the sea to the sounds of the national anthem of the Soviet Union.

      Specify what kind of Europe. There is Europe and there is Europe. The first is not profitable for the supply of Russian gas, while the second will become unprofitable if they are stopped or reduced. Although these Europeans coincide territorially, the vector of thinking is different, counterattack I would say.

      If the Americans wanted to act in this way, then on the territory of Russia not a single gas pipeline would work for a long time, but would only explode, they are not guarded at all, because it is practically impossible.
      Gently, I’ll tell you not to fantasize, because In our pipelines, a lot of American dollars have been invested. The oligarchs will never allow the special services to inflict such damage on themselves.

        What makes you think that they are not protected? Each compressor station has a security staff, which is assigned a section of the highway, which they guard over its entire length (a barrier on the highway, video control, auto patrol, access control at the compressor stations and the provision of intra-facility and access control). So there is physical security. Another question is what is the effectiveness of this guard in preventing and combating sabotage, if it is already in the field of action of the special services?

      This gizmo is generally reusable and is an expensive part, however, although the main, but only part of the system, and possibly not the most expensive.

      Such a contraption is unlikely to have been abandoned, unless a serious accident caused the impossibility of lifting. The article says they threw a one-time ROV. This thing is cheaper and simpler, something like

      hi
      This is a one-time ROV, remotely controlled device. Similar devices are used to neutralize old mines, while the device itself also explodes

      I wonder what method of detonation detonation? Is it only exploding from a mine’s explosion, or is an explosive device built into it from which the mine is already detonating?

      No, not like that. In your photo TPU of the modular type “Cougar” - is designed to perform complex underwater operations at depths up to 2000 meters (up to 6000 meters is possible). Disposable ROV is a completely different device.
      Underwater robot SeaFox is able to automatically detect underwater, surface targets and destroy them
      SeaFox robots come in a variety of modifications.
      They have a length of 1,3 m, a weight of about 40 kg and a range of more than 1 km. The devices can be equipped with a television camera, sonar and a device for detonating drifting mines, can be controlled by fiber optic cable or radio. SeaFox is battery powered and can dive to a depth of 300 m, i.e. able to get to the submarine hiding at the bottom. The maximum speed underwater is 6 knots (11 km / h).
      SeaFox can search for mines and other ammunition in a semi-automatic mode: the device searches and detects potentially dangerous objects with the help of a sonar, then we approach them and identify it with a video camera. After that, the operator gives the command to destroy the target using a large-caliber cumulative charge. Theoretically, in special cases, fully automatic operation is possible. You can use an underwater robot from any platform: ships of various displacement, rubber boats, helicopters.

      Elementary.

      It was enough only to lose contact with the device due to damage or "dead hook" of the cable at the depths "beyond the limits" for a person to make an operation to "rescue" it, not advisable ...

      And besides everything else, to undermine explosive objects, apparently there are not so complicated (and not expensive) technically devices. Indeed, to "stick" to the alleged mine, and to explode with it, the "hands" - manipulators, for example, are not needed ....

And in general, it’s hard to believe that the owner of the device by serial number and other markings cannot be traced.

      The namesake, I welcome you!
      When laying cables, pipelines and other crap along the bottom of the sea, the site (route) is carefully examined for the absence of mine-like (explosive) objects. And this is a mandatory procedure, especially in the Baltic Sea, where the remnants of WWII were simply drowned in the sea, and thousands more put mine banks on the ship’s traffic routes.
      So, to find out “whose shoe?” You just need to see who got the contract for the examination of the Nord Stream highway, whose MTS were involved in this work, whether there was docdad (most likely no) about the loss of the seeker-destroyer. But I, on the site of the military, would write off this destroyer as used. That they found him - an accident 1 / 1mln. But, knowing the state of our MTS, we can say that for sure this thing is imported ... yes

      Yes, it is this device that is designed to “explode” the way it “self-destructs” (on command) if it finds a mine-explodes with it. The version that the device was simply “lost” does not stand up to criticism, since these devices carry explosives and have an independent acoustic path to undermine this charge in case of loss of the device, so that it does not pose a danger in the future. The fact that the device was found suggests that the device was in close proximity to the pipeline, since only the pipeline was examined in terms of prevention and if the device fell into the camera visibility range, then it lay no further than 1-2 meters from the pipeline, given the poor visibility in the Baltic Sea. This really prepared a sabotage. The idea is simple: to destroy the pipeline, cause interruptions in gas supplies, possibly some pollution of the sea itself, which will cause the green people to scream about the "environmental threat" of the "unreliable" Russian pipeline, etc. The main thing is to break the Northern stream 2 ".

      You are the only one who wrote the correct version. But miners of analytics instructed you immediately. Everyone directly served as miners in the navy and everyone knows everything.
      They can’t understand in any way - why do a blast during the preventive inspection of the gas pipeline. It is much easier to do in between.
      The second one. The gas pipeline is made of steel pipes and it is not necessary to look for it. It is perfectly visible on special devices. Thus - went to the pipes, lowered the magnetic explosive device and left. After a while, no gas pipe will remain at the site of the explosion.
      The third. Western dollars and euros are invested in our pipelines. No oligarchs will allow the special services to stop the flow of profits from Russia.
      The very first reader, Bronoptimist, wrote frank lies and all readers rushed to this piece of rotten meat. And let's chew, spit and growl, swept Sweden with her search for submarines, with sabotage, etc.
      If someone wanted to commit such a diversion, then nothing would have remained of our gas pipeline long ago, except for corrupted pipes at the bottom of the Baltic.

        Aleksey_K. Your version looks very true, all the more remember the samovars, who steal oil. Such a trick doesn’t fit here, but pulling your nerves is elementary, and it could also be an attempt to draw money for unnecessary security. It’s real to check if there are any numbers that have been lost. No numbers - an attempt at blackmail or sabotage.

        Nothing Armored optimist I didn’t write one that could be called “outright lies”. Shareholders of Nord Stream - Germans, Dutch, French - continental Europe. And the found device most likely, as I wrote Bayonet adopted by the British minesweepers SeaFox. Look at the attitude of Britain towards continental Europe. IMHO, the preparation of sabotage in the light of the greater proximity of Britain to the United States does not at all look like "rotten meat."

          Well, yes, the “Bayonet” apparently found this device and determined its nationality on its “sofa”. The article does not even have a photo of this device! And if you would look into the enemy Wikipedia, you would be surprised to find more than a dozen companies producing such devices and several in Russia.
          Maybe this is ours? But the article accurately says that the device was transferred to Sweden, which means it has a "nameplate" - Made in Sweden (Tillverkad i Sverige or Made in Sweden). Will the more developed British in this area use Swedish development and depend on them in the manufacture of military equipment?

            They will (or are unlikely to be). Re-read the article more carefully. The nearest territory is reportedly Gotland Island. Maybe a Swedish loss. However, nothing is reported about the nameplate data, but quite the opposite:
            “The military personnel of many countries engaged in mine clearance in the Baltic Sea use such devices, so it’s impossible to say now who exactly owns it.”

            Therefore, they transferred to Sweden that the nearest territories. And the SeaFox is precisely the explosive principle of action. And the fact is that it is manufactured by the German factory ATLAS ELEKTRONIK GmbH, and is in service not only in Germany, but also in Thailand, the United Arab Emirates, Finland, Estonia, Japan, Great Britain, the USA, Belgium, the Netherlands and, oddly enough, Sweden .

        And what is your version actually? I see a lot of letters, a lot of minuses.
        I see how a person suggested something, and you supported.
        Then you throw G at the fan, and blame others that there is no evidence in the article. What is your own evidence? Video, photo, model of the device? Or just write: "Do not like the truth - ignoramus."

        Although I do not like that everyone immediately called diversion, but it seems more strange that someone has profiled an expensive device and has been encrypted for so long, sits and is silent. Not today, an event occurred.

    It's funny that a boat that no one but a drunken fisherman saw was unambiguously identified as Russian, and an apparatus on which there are serial numbers and markings is unrecognizable. Miracles, and only.

    This is not a torn float from a fishing rod, so that it simply be carried by the current. Or the course should be like in a mountain stream. Probably something like this. Not special, of course I am, but weakly somehow I believe recourse

    What is there to think? Everything is clear, like a day! Someone, but clearly our enemies, Americans, Swedes, Poles, Balts, Ukrainians, Ishilovites (underline as appropriate), were planning to blow up, make a hole, crash into a pipe (underline as necessary).
    To do this, they assembled the apparatus from Chinese license plates, launched, but the Chinese parts failed.
    And diving after it is more expensive than the device itself cost. Here they abandoned it.

    Even if we assume that not everyone is happy with the gas pipeline, investors are interested in continuing the construction and, all the more, the gas pipeline’s functioning safety. So to drop a test ball (forgetting a device capable of undermining the gas pipeline at the bottom) does not mean that someone is really going to to do, maybe the company itself deciding the security issues decided to be promoted in this way, maybe the "sworn friends" remind them that nothing is alien to them. In general, the competent services will figure out what and how.
