About this project

The work involved the delivery, installation and commissioning of a 1,500 m long sinker pipeline.

For this construction, 125 sections of steel pipes had to be welded, each 12 m long with an internal diameter of 600 mm.

The pipe sections were welded together on the dike near the immersion site and then transported as a whole floating to the immersion site at sea and sunk.
