A new webcam has gone live at Puttgarden, which broadcasts a livestream from the German construction site. The webcam slowly rotates across the construction site at Puttgarden, so you can follow the ongoing work in the portal area and the construction of the bridges on land. The webcam is an addition to the two existing webcams that live stream from the construction site in Rødbyhavn.
Femern A/S has commissioned the Danish contracting group Aarsleff to build a new viewing platform close to the construction of the Fehmarnbelt tunnel at Rødbyhavn. The platform will be 217 metres long and enable visitors and the local community to follow the building of the tunnel at close hand from 2025.
In production hall B, our contractor has been busy with the casting work, and the first tunnel element can no longer be inside the factory's Hall B and has now been pushed out the factory. A total of nine segments are needed to make the 217 meter long tunnel elements. After each segment, we push the element forward to make room for the next segment in the mold. After four segments and with a fifth on the way, this means that the first element is now sticking out the exit of the hall.
As the client, it is important to Femern A/S that safety on the construction site is top notch. That is why we have ongoing campaigns to make the workers on the entire site aware of various measures in their daily work. This month we are focusing on safety on the harbor dikes. We communicate directly on to the construction site through our info screens, so we are sure that everybody on site knows the various safety rules.
The tunnel factory for the construction of the Fehmarnbelt tunnel takes another step towards shipping of the first tunnel element into the Fehmarnbelt. Currently, water is being filled into the three large basins in front of the tunnel factory at Rødbyhavn in Denmark.
Casting of the tunnel elements for the 18 km immersed tunnel between Rødbyhavn on Lolland in Denmark and Puttgarden on the German island of Femern is underway, which marks a key milestone in the project. The first casting was carried out by a 140-strong team from Femern Link Contractors.
