The Baltic Pipe project will provide substantial additional gas flows through the Danish transmission system.
In order to accommodate these volumes, and to enable the transport of gas from the Danish West coast to the South-East part of Zealand, a number of expansions of the existing Danish onshore infrastructure are required.
The existing pipelines between Nybro and Egtved and under the Great Belt are large enough to handle the increased volume of gas, but elsewhere the onshore infrastructure needs to be expanded. A total of approx. 200 km of new onshore gas pipelines in Denmark and under the Little Belt are planned.
The planned expansions in Denmark are:
- Construction of a new pipeline from the beach near Blåbjerg to Nybro,
- Construction of a receiving plant at Nybro,
- Construction of a new pipeline from Egtved to the Little Belt,
- Construction of a new pipeline across the Little Belt,
- Construction of a new pipeline over Fyn from the Little Belt to Nyborg,
- Construction of a new pipeline on Zealand from Kongsmark to the Baltic Sea offshore landfall at the southeaster part of Zealand.
Energinet, who will own the new infrastructure, is responsible for planning, constructing and operating this part of the project.
