Nord Stream 2 AG to begin work in German waters in mid-May despite NABU’s lawsuit
Nord Stream 2 AG expects to begin the construction of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline in the Bay of Greifswald in the middle of May as planned, in spite of the lawsuit filed by Germany’s Nature and Biodiversity Conservation Union (NABU) demanding to prevent that, TASS reported.
The spokesman for the company, which is the operator of the construction project, informed on Saturday that the middle of May is the earliest time envisaged by the decision on the schedule [for the construction and operation of the pipeline in the German coastal waters and in the littoral zone] for the beginning of preparatory work in the water, which must be done before actually laying the pipes. He added that the company is ready to begin this work, the way it was planned.
The specific date will be announced soon, it could be put off due to unfavorable weather conditions, the company’s spokesman noted.
