Recent studies have indicated that in a certain critical coupling phase the Einstein-matter-gauge equations may be reduced to a Bogomol'nyi-Einstein system and the solutions are cosmic strings with finite separation. In this paper, we view the spacetime as known and treat the dynamics as being determined by the matter-gauge sector in an asymptotically Euclidean geometry. It is shown that the model admits a continuous family of infinite energy solutions which decay to the symmetric vacuum faster than any exponential functions.
