DNV completes verification for Baltic pipeline


Energinet, the Danish national transmission system operator for electricity and natural gas, has received Certificates of Conformity (CoC) from DNV, the independent energy expert and assurance provider, for its section of the major offshore Baltic Pipe project.

The CoC’s were handed over at a ceremony in Energinet’s office in Ballerup, Denmark in December. The £2bn gas pipeline is a strategic infrastructure project with the goal of creating a new gas supply corridor for the European market; with an annual capacity of 10bcm, the Baltic Pipe Project will allow gas transport from Norway to Denmark and Poland.

Work took place during the engineering, procurement, construction, installation, hook-up, and commissioning phases of the project.
