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.
Femern A/S has prequalified four international consortia in the competition to build the electrified railway in the Fehmarnbelt tunnel to Germany. The contract has an expected total tender price of approximately DKK 1.5 billion and focuses on climate-friendly solutions during construction and in operation.
