Femern A/S is establishing a large 42-hectare stone reef close to the German island of Fehmarn. The reef will be established as part of the construction of the Fehmarnbelt tunnel and will become a new habitat for a wide variety of flora and fauna. Femern A/S is currently surveying the market to get information on availability of suitable stones for the purpose.
In the spring, Femern A/S is putting the Fehmarnbelt tunnel’s track and catenary system for electric trains out to tender. The contract is worth around EUR 200m or DKK 1.5bn. Extensive market research was recently carried out to ensure that the tender reflects the latest knowhow in the area.
