Pipeline construction in the Ore Mountains

The EUGAL is to run from Lubmin near Greifswald on the Baltic Sea in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania in a southerly direction to Deutschneudorf in Saxony and on to the Czech Republic. It has a total length of around 480 kilometers and is to be laid in large sections parallel to the Baltic Sea Pipeline Link (OPAL). Thus, it runs through three federal states. The uneven terrain in the Ore Mountains made it necessary to use special technology when laying the pipelines.
