Construction of the world’s longest immersed tunnel well underway


With final German approval of the Fehmarnbelt project obtained in November 2020, construction of the Fehmarnbelt Tunnel between Denmark and Germany is now well underway.

I’m delighted that construction of the world’s longest immersed tunnel is advancing,” said Claus F. Baunkjær, CEO of Femern A/S, the client organisation.

Tenders for the next step in the project are now being invited – the supply and installation of the electrical and mechanical systems for the 18 km immersed tunnel at a value of EUR 750 million.

”Our tender emphasises both a high level of mobility and great energy efficiency. It also focuses on the need for the Fehmarnbelt Tunnel to be prepared for the use of new technologies and the transition to new and green modes of transport,” adds Claus F. Baunkjær.
