MMT AB Awarded Vessel, ROV Contract for Nordstream

Source: 3/1/2010, Location: Asia

MMT has recently been awarded a vessel and ROV contract for the Nord Stream pipeline, which is planned to be installed between Russia and Germany. The contract includes the supply of an Offshore Supply vessel as well as ROVs and personnel for the munitions clearance operations, which is planned to commence shortly.

During and after the First and Second World Wars, chemical and conventional munitions were deployed and disposed of in the Baltic Sea. In order to guarantee the safe construction and operation of the pipeline, MMT has, on the behalf of Nord Stream, carefully assessed the seabed with the aim of avoiding munitions.

Based on the results of the surveys, it was possible to avoid many sites where munitions would have impeded safe construction and operation. However, in specific locations, it is necessary to clear munitions. For safe removal Nord Stream has developed a munitions clearance plan in close cooperation with the responsible national authorities, thus benefiting from their experience with the handling of dumped munitions.

MMT has chartered the vessel Edda Freya especially for this assignment. The vessel will be manned with approximately 40 field specialists for MMT, Bactec, NordStream, and Ostensjo.

The demolition work will be conducted by experts from Bactec, a UK based explosive Ordnance disposal and mine action company.

MMT will be responsible for the ROV work, which will be conducted by a subAtlantic Comanche work class ROV equipped to handle underwater explosives as well as a Mohican inspection ROV equipped with multibeam echo sounder for detailed seabed mapping. The work will commence in the beginning of March and will stretch over a 75-day long time period.

Nord Stream is a 1220-kilometre-long offshore natural gas pipeline through the Baltic Sea, from Vyborg, Russia to Greifswald, Germany, which is to be built by Nord Stream AG.
