Denmark: 17 Tenders Submitted for Fehmarnbelt Project

After several years of thorough preparation, Femern A/S has received a total of 17 tenders from nine major international contractors or consortia wishing to participate in the construction of the world’s largest immersed tunnel. This represents another significant milestone in the course of the project scheduled for completion in 2021.

”This is a very important day for the Fehmarnbelt project, which we’ve been eagerly awaiting. We now finally get to see the specific and innovative solutions that the contractors have prepared,” said Steen Lykke, Technical Director, Femern A/S.Interest from the contractors has been fantastic and we’re looking forward to examining the tenders in more detail.”

The 17 tenders, which have been submitted by some of the world’s leading experts, set out how the project can be accomplished within the framework defined by Femern A/S. As the project involves groundbreaking technology, the contractors have been afforded significant scope for innovative ideas in their tenders.

The future fixed link between Rødby and Puttgarden is one of the largest infrastructure projects in Europe. Due to its size and complexity, the project is divided up into four large construction contracts, each of which will create thousands of jobs.

The four contracts cover the dredging of the 18 km and 12 m deep trench in the seabed, the construction of the northern and southern ends of the tunnel and the establishment of the adjacent facilities on both the German and Danish sides of the tunnel.
