The German Navy participates in the surveillance of Norway´s sea area with the aim of protecting the critical maritime infrastructure there, said in a statement the German navy chief Vice-Admiral Jan Christian Kaack.

Following the incidents at the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines, the German Navy is helping to support Norway, Denmark and Sweden in protecting critical maritime infrastructure such as oil platforms, submarine cables and pipelines. Kaack said the navy is fulfilling Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s promise to support Norway, Denmark and Sweden in protecting critical maritime infrastructure after the Nord Stream incidents.

“In order to improve the situational picture at sea, NATO has taken over the coordination of the situational picture structure, especially in the sea area off the Norwegian coast. The German Navy participates in passages to and from naval maneuvers in these areas, but also with recurring flights with the P-3C Orion off the Norwegian coast,” explains the chief of the Navy.

Currently, a ship unit of the German Navy, consisting of the frigates “Rheinland-Pfalz”, “Mecklenburg-Vorpommern”, “Schleswig-Holstein” and the Einsatzgruppenversorger “Berlin” is in the sea area. “The German Navy in Norwegian waters stands for NATO’s promise of ‘one for all and all for one’,” as Kaack emphasizes.
