Tunnel construction creates jobs

The construction of the Fehmarnbelt tunnel is Denmark’s largest civil engineering project to date and will create many thousands of new jobs in both Denmark and Northern Germany in the years ahead.

Femern A/S is the client for the Fehmarnbelt tunnel between Denmark and Germany, which is being undertaken by the two main contractors, Fehmarn Belt Contractors (FBC) and Femern Link Contractors (FLC).

The two contractors are responsible for hiring the necessary workforce for the tunnel construction.

A strong demand for labour from the building and construction sector, as well as the service sector, is expected throughout the construction period.

Jobs include:

  • all types of building trades
  • earth and concrete workers
  • iron and metal workers
  • machine operators
  • administration

The many new jobs at the Fehmarnbelt construction sites will also create more jobs with sub-contractors.

This particularly applies to the building trades, but demand will also cover the hotel and catering sector, security and cleaning companies, etc.
