The Audacia started its installation works at the end of the 30-kilometres-long trench of the twin pipeline, located in German territorial waters.

She will be laying pipes for approximately 38 kilometers in a deeper water section of the route. "Once the Audacia completes the first line, it will then return to starting point to continue laying the second line, completing its works in Germany by the end of 2018," the press service said.

All works on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline in German territorial waters are scheduled to be completed by the end of this year.

Germany, Finland and Sweden have issued all permits for the construction and operation of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline. Poland, the Baltic countries, Ukraine, Moldova, the United States and Denmark are against its construction.
