OREANDA-NEWS. The pipe-laying barge Fortuna, capable of completing the gas pipeline Nord Stream 2, entered Danish territorial waters. This is evidenced by the data of tracking services for the movement of marine vessels MarineTraffic and Myshiptracking. According to the latter, on July 7 the ship left the territorial waters of Germany and entered the Danish part of the Baltic Sea.

On July 6, the Danish Energy Agency reported that pipe-laying vessels with anchor positioning can be involved in the construction of a gas pipeline in Danish waters, which was prohibited earlier. The day after this decision, Fortuna headed towards Denmark.

The Nord Stream-2 project involves the construction of two gas pipelines with a length of more than 1.2 thousand kilometers each and total capacity of 55 billion cubic meters per year along the bottom of the Baltic Sea. They will supply fuel to Germany through the maritime territories of Russia, Germany, Finland, Sweden and Denmark. Now the pipeline is more than 90 % complete.
