Ensuring Nord Stream 2 is Free of Remaining World War II Explosives

M² Subsea, an Aberdeenshire, Scotland subsea business has won a contract worth more than £1m to remove explosives from around the extension, Nord Stream 2, of world's longest offshore pipeline.

Next Geosolutions, an independent geoscience and engineering service provider, has awarded the contract and the company will oversee all work by M² Subsea pertaining to UXO removal, most of which have remained buried near the Baltic Sea floor since the end of WW II.

Subsea CEO Mike Arnold said last week that “safety is a key factor on every project and in particular where it involves surveying the seabed to identify undiscovered explosive devices for removal. We are very pleased to have chartered the Go Electra which is a highly specialised vessel for subsea inspection, repair and maintenance work and ideal for supporting the conditions the team and ROVs face in the Baltic.

The Nord Stream twin offshore pipeline system runs from Russia to Germany and measures 1,244km in length.
