Monitoring buoys ensure environmental safety during offshore pipe laying
Transport of energy is an important issue due to the ever increasing demand on the distribution of global resources.
The Nord Stream Pipeline crosses the Baltic Sea, forming the most direct connection between the vast natural gas reserves in Russia and energy markets in the European Union. The pipeline passes through the waters of five countries, making its construction and permission and consultation process a major feat. An important aspect of this process is the best possible protection of the affected environment and the mitigation of potential impacts.
