Nord Stream 2 Takes Another Step Towards Operating Status

With the concrete weight coating of pipes to be used in Nord Stream 2 another milestone in the project's development has been reached.

Wasco has been named contractor for the work, all taking place in Kotka, Finland, which is turning out to be a major port for the further development of the project. Almost half of the 200,000 pipes needed for the entire project will be concrete weight coated in Wasco’s plant located at HaminaKotka.

Nord Stream 2 noted on its website that "concrete weight coating increases the stability of the pipeline on the seabed, as the concrete doubles to 24 tonnes the weight of each 12 metre, 48-inch diameter pipe joint. Coating also protects the pipes from external damage when they are stored, transported and eventually lowered on to the seabed."
