The latest spurt: "Academician Chersky" went around the African continent


The Akademik Chersky pipe-and-lay vessel, owned by Gazprom Fleet, a 100% subsidiary of PJSC Gazprom, continues to move steadily to the Baltic to complete the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline. Currently, KMTUS has circled the African continent from the south and headed for the port of Las Palmas, located on the Canary Islands (Spain).


Vessel traffic is monitored by marine monitoring sites Marine Traffic and Vesselfinder. According to their information, recently the ship was opposite Angola, but already on April 18, 2020 should approach the aforementioned archipelago located in the Atlantic Ocean, opposite the coast of Morocco and Western Sahara.

We remind you that KMTUS left Nakhodka in the Sea of ​​Japan, heading for Singapore on February 9, 2020. After that, “Alexander Chersky”, accompanied by ships of the Russian Navy, headed for Sri Lanka and Mozambique, breaking the Indian Ocean.

I must add that while “Alexander Chersky” is moving in the direction of the Baltic, European companies carry out necessary support work on the unfinished gas pipeline. They continue to sketch stones at the constructed site, and also conduct visual inspection and instrumental control of the gas pipeline.


"Academician Chersky" after visiting the Canary Islands will be the last spurt. The vessel will need to overcome the "hospitable" English Channel and get into the North Sea. Then go through the Danish Straits to the Baltic Sea (a system of straits between the Scandinavian and Jutland Peninsulas). Although the ship can get to the Baltic Sea in another way - go through the navigable Kiel Canal (the former Kaiser Wilhelm Canal) in Germany, which connects the Baltic Sea and the North Sea.

    continues to move confidently to the Baltic

    bypassed the African continent

    And why was it so far to go? Via the Suez Canal and Gibraltar is not easier? Not closer? Not cheaper?

      Not cheaper. The price of fuel has fallen, there is no payment for the channel.

        Then yes, it makes sense. Then you have to go the Danish Straits, otherwise the Kiel Canal is also not cheap.

            I’m not very interested in gas stations on the Suez Canal, but on the territory of my residence very much. And somehow it’s extremely strange, almost all over the world, the price of fuel at gas stations automatically decreases when oil prices fall, and in some countries it stands still, if it does not increase. Do not explain this wonderful paradox, a fan of refueling on the Suez Canal?

              So talk about where they write about this situation. Why are you climbing here?

              I can’t explain. This is beyond your understanding, the level of mental development will not allow you to understand the pricing mechanism. no
              I’m afraid that the news about vessels refueling not at gas stations and not with gasoline will be a great shock to you.
              And throw already these habits about

              worldwide

              You do not know anything about the world, you are only interested in the "territory of residence".

                - Well, explain to me, siroma and wretched, how this happens. I'm afraid, except for you here, no one reading this article will be able to do this. Help, for Christ’s sake, we will all be obliged to write down the grave of life for all of us, we’ll write down memorials, and we will regularly put candles after resting.

                  Thank you, no candles are needed, I'm afraid you have rectal ones. As there will be a topic about pricing, then we'll talk. And so this is cheap trolling, take the conversation aside.

      Do not follow the news. They did not let him through Suez, because there was no insurance. And nobody wanted to take out insurance, because of the sacrifice, etc.

        A vessel, if it is not the Russian Navy, will not issue any port control at sea without insurance.

      The cost of fuel and passage through Suez is not fate to compare? And sworn friends should not be forgotten. As soon as the thought of the Panama Canal did not get into the pan. Although horse racing is worse than pitching.

    It is not clear that the ship’s crane has a height of 40 meters. Over the water, or over the deck? If above water, then under the bridges of the canal will pass, there over 42 meters will fly over water. To the edge, but .... But if above the deck, then you need to add another 15 meters, then nothing.

    According to the text, this glorious ship was twice named "Alexander Chersky" and three times - "Academician Chersky".
    I think that in reality it is still called "Academician Nikolai Chersky" :)

    The tradition is to name the ship, registered, in two words. Characteristic - in one.

    And why refused to post along the Northern Sea Route? It is much shorter and runs along the coast of the Russian Federation.
