DeepOcean, a subsidiary of DeepOcean Group Holding BV (DeepOcean), has been awarded a significant contract for performing ploughing operations on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline in the Baltic Sea.

The Nord Stream 2 Project concerns the construction of an offshore natural gas transmission system comprising of two
1,220 km pipelines from the Russian Baltic Sea to the German Baltic Coast. In December 2017 Nord Stream 2 AG awarded DeepOcean a contract for ploughing operations along pre-defined sections of the pipeline. The award covers project management, engineering, survey and ploughing activities.

The onshore project team will work out of DeepOceanís offices in Darlington, UK. Offshore execution will be performed with
DeepOceanís AMP500 Plough in two campaigns over 2018 and 2019.

DeepOceanís Commercial Director for Cable Installation & Trenching, Andrew Piasecki, said:

"DeepOcean are proud to be selected by Nord Stream 2 AG as their solution for ploughing works on this milestone project. We shall deploy our AMP500 plough to bury the 48Ē pipelines, building upon our extensive experience in the offshore trenching market and enhancing our position as a trusted partner for challenging burial projects. We look forward to supporting our client in delivering this key project safely and to specification.Ē
