Pipe delivery to Koverhar
Almost 200 kilometres of ready-to-lay pipes for the Nord Stream 2 project will be delivered by train from Russia to the Finnish port of Koverhar (near Hanko). The 12-metre, 24-tonne pipes are secured with brackets and chains. Here, a worker grades them before they are sent back with the empty wagons. The port is one of four logistical hubs for the project. Thirty percent of the approximately 204,000 pipes needed to build the pipelines are stored in Koverhar before being transported to the pipelay vessels.
