It was noted that the works on the re-excavation and laying of the foundation for the gas receiving stations and the maintenance building have already begun at the docking point of the future pipeline in Lubmin,  Mecklenburg-Vorpommern land, at the square of about six hectares.

According to the representative of the company, the works take place according to the established schedule. He is sure that all permission for the construction of the Nord Stream 2 will be issued. Tthe string of the first Nord Stream was situated in this corridor due to the strong desire of Denmark and the company is sure that the government in Copenhagen will agree on the construction of Nord Stream 2 in this corridor.
