The state guarantee model
As with the links across Storebælt and Øresund, the Fehmarnbelt link will use the so-called state guarantee model. The model ensures low financing costs, and makes it possible to fund major projects at no cost to the taxpayer.
The loans will be paid back over time with the revenue from the users of the link. The revenue will also cover the cost of operation and maintenance of the finished tunnel, as well the cost of construction and operation of the railway from Rødbyhavn to Ringsted.
