The offshore pipelay vessel ‘Audacia’ began its work on the Nord Stream 2 project today.
The ‘Audacia’ is the second vessel together with the ‘Castoro Dieci’ (C10) to lay the Nord Stream 2 pipeline in the German route section.
‘Audacia’ started its installation works at the end of the 30-kilometres-long trench of the twin pipeline, located in German territorial waters. She will be laying pipes for approximately 38 kilometres in a deeper water section of the route. Once ‘Audacia’ completes the first line, it will then return to starting point to continue laying the second line, completing its works in Germany by the end of 2018.
All works on the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline in German territorial waters are scheduled to be completed by the end of this year.
