MMT Sweden, a marine survey company engaged around the world, has been awarded a three year contract by Nord Stream AG to inspect both lines of the Nord Stream Pipeline running along the floor of the Baltic Sea.
The external inspection of the pipeline will be executed by the joint venture between MMT Sweden and Reach Subsea.
The scope of work, to be executed this year, includes visual and instrumental inspection of the pipelines with remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) over the entire length of the route. The trenched sections and cable crossings of the pipeline will also be inspected. The survey will mainly be conducted from the vessel Stril Explorer.
The purpose of the survey is to assess the integrity of the subsea pipeline.
MMT Sweden’s founder Ola Oskarsson commented: “We are very proud to be chosen to conduct the important inspections of this great infrastructure project and bring our new technology to the Baltic Sea. In cooperation with our partner, Reach Subsea, we will support Nord Stream’s safe and environmentally sound energy transport to Europe.”
