The contractors on the Fehmarnbelt tunnel

The two contractor consortia, Fehmarn Belt Contractors (FBC) and Fehmarn Link Contractors (FLC), are responsible for the construction of the 18 km long Fehmarnbelt tunnel between Rødbyhavn and Puttgarden.

The contract with the Dutch contractor consortium, FBC, came into force in November 2019. The task includes the dredging work at sea, the establishment of the two work harbours and land reclamation for the new nature areas.
