WATCH: Nord Stream releases construction overview

Nord Stream 2 has released a video illustrating how the pipeline will be laid off the coast of Germany.

With Allseas’ pipelay vessel Audacia beginning operations in October, Nord Stream 2 has released a video showing the process for the near shore construction in this section of the twin pipeline.

Operations take place across four key stages: environmental monitoring, trenching, backfilling and seabed restoration.

A channel will be created along the pipe by removing the seabed layers, the top layers and clay pockets.

Following pipelaying, vessels will backfill the trenches with material and seabed restoration will take place.
