Pipelay Reaches Rügen/ Nord Stream on Schedule

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 6/22/2010, Location: Asia

The Castoro Dieci (C10), the ship laying the pipe for the Nord Stream Pipeline, reached Rügen yesterday. The ship, which is specially designed to lay pipes in shallow waters, has now docked in the Sassnitz ferry port in Mukran after a one-week voyage. It left Rotterdam on 16 June. It had been in Rotterdam since the end of February being retrofitted to meet the special demands of the Nord Stream project.

The C10, which is owned by the Italian company Saipem, does not have its own propulsion system. Therefore, it was pulled along the Danish coast on its crossing by the tug boat “Primus”. Final preparations will be made in Mukran so that the work to lay the pipeline in the Greifswalder Bodden can begin at the end of June, as scheduled.

Also, the first 80 pipes which will eventually be laid in the Greifswalder Bodden are being loaded onto the pipe carrier vessel “Ocean Spirit” in Mukran. The pipes, weighing roughly 23 tonnes, were manufactured in Mülheim an der Ruhr, Germany, and were supplied with an 11 centimetre concrete coating in Mukran.

The pipes will be loaded onto the pipelay vessel waiting in the harbour and then made ready for laying, which will start at the end of June.
