Fehmarnbelt dredging hits halfway mark

Dredging operations for the 18 km Fehmarnbelt tunnel between Denmark and Germany achieved a major milestone a couple of days ago – 50 pct of the total amount of soil has now been dredged from the seabed.

The Dutch consortium, Fehmarn Belt Contractors (FBC) including Boskalis and Van Oord – responsible for dredging part of the project, is using some of the world’s largest dredgers plus barges, tugs and other specialist vessels for this job.
