How to become a sub-contractor
The tunnel construction in the Fehmarnbelt offers great opportunities for small and medium-sized companies that want to become sub-contractors to the project
Femern A/S is the client for the Fehmarnbelt tunnel, which is being undertaken by the two main contractors, Fehmarn Belt Contractors (FBC) and Femern Link Contractors (FLC). The consortia are the main contractors and will, in part, use their own teams and equipment.
However, for well-prepared sub-contractors, the opportunities for work are significant. Examples include:
- sub-contractors for both construction and building trades work
- hotel and catering
- safety and cleaning companies
In addition is the procurement of goods and services from local and regional companies on both sides of the Fehmarnbelt.
THERE IS A HUGE POTENTIAL FOR WELL-PREPARED SUB-CONTRACTORS
Requirement for proper conditions
Femern A/S requires the contractor consortia to ensure proper conditions in terms of pay and employment, as well as in terms of the working environment, safety and housing. The main contractors will pass these requirements on to their sub-contractors, who are thus also required to meet Femern A/S’ demands.
As the client, Femern A/S does not facilitate direct contact between the main and sub-contractors. Any agreement between the two is a commercial agreement reached by the parties on market terms.
