MMT Sweden awarded offshore pipeline inspection work

Marine survey service provider MMT Sweden has been awarded a three-year contract by Nord Stream AG to inspect both lines of the Nord Stream Pipeline running through the Baltic Sea from Russia to Germany.

The external inspection of the pipeline will be executed by the joint venture between MMT Sweden and Reach Subsea.

The scope of work, involving approximately 150 days for 2017, includes visual and instrumental inspection of the pipelines with remotely operated vehicles  over the entire length of the route. The trenched sections and cable crossings of the pipeline will also be inspected.

MMT Sweden will conduct the survey using the multi purpose service vessel Stril Explorer.

“We are very proud to be chosen to conduct the important inspections of this great infrastructure project and bring our new technology to the Baltic Sea. In cooperation with our partner, Reach Subsea, we will support Nord Stream’s safe and environmentally sound energy transport to Europe,” said Ola Oskarsson, MMT Sweden’s founder.
