The Russian pipelayer Akademik Chersky has arrived at the construction site of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline in Danish waters. This is evidenced by the data of the global ship positioning system MarineTraffic.
The ship sailed to the exclusive economic zone of Denmark the day before. It is expected that the pipelayer will first carry out preparatory work prior to laying the first pipeline.
As a reminder, since March 9, “Akademik Chersky” has been in the Kaliningrad region, where it underwent running and pre-operational tests.
Earlier, the Danish authorities said that work on laying the gas pipeline in the country’s waters will last until the end of September this year, and not until the end of April, as previously planned.
