Baltic Connector Oy, established to implement the Finnish part of the Balticconnector gas pipeline project between Finland and Estonia, said that the preparatory work for the offshore pipeline will proceed to the next phase, in which excavation work will be initiated on the site of the offshore pipeline.

The first excavation work will be carried out in front of Fjusö in Inkoo with the dredging of the seabed and the preparation of the channel into which the offshore pipeline will be installed in summer 2019.

Excavation work will continue in front of Skämmö during the weekend.
