GAZ-SYSTEM: Environmental Decision for the Baltic Pipe landfall in Denmark
Baltic Pipe has obtained the first administrative decisions for the Project implementation in Denmark. On 12th July 2019 the Danish Environment Protection Agency issued two environmental decisions related to the onshore pipeline location: one for GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. and the other for Energinet – the Danish national transmission operator for gas and electricity.
The decision for GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. covers the section where the offshore pipeline enters the land as well as the construction of the microtunnel up to the shoreline. Thanks to the trenchless microtunneling technology, the environmental impact will be minimised and the pipeline construction will leave the Danish beach and cliff intact.
