MOSCOW, May 7 – RIA News. The Akademik Chersky pipelayer headed for the German port of Mukran, the Nord Stream 2 logistics center, where the pipes for the construction of the gas pipeline are stored, follows from the data from the Vesselfinder and Myshiptracking portals, which track ship movements.
According to the portals, Academician Chersky is due to arrive in Murkan on May 8th.
Nord Stream Pipeline Construction – 2

Media: Germany will deprive Nord Stream 2 of its immunity to the gas directive
Earlier Thursday, the ship left the port of Kaliningrad and indicated the course to the German port of Lauffen.
The port of Murcan on the island of Rugen serves as a logistics terminal for the construction of Nord Stream 2. At present, the port already has the Fortuna pipe-laying barge of the MRTS company, which also meets the technical requirements of the Danish authorities for the completion of Nord Stream-2.
Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak in December reported that the use of Chersky is one of the options for completing the Nord Stream-2, but some time will be required for additional preparation of the vessel.
Nord Stream 2 involves the construction of two gas pipelines with a total capacity of 55 billion cubic meters of gas per year from the Russian coast through the Baltic Sea to Germany. The United States is actively opposing the project, promoting its liquefied natural gas in the EU, as well as Ukraine and several European countries. The states imposed sanctions on the project in December, requiring construction companies to stop construction immediately. Swiss Allseas almost immediately announced the suspension of the gas pipeline.
