Germany - Major contractor of Femern tunnel seeking suppliers of vessels for bulk transportation
Mon, 20 January 2014
On September 3, 2008, Denmark and Germany signed a treaty for the construction of a fixed link across the Femernbelt – the project is known as the Femernbelt Fixed Link.
The treaty states that the link will comprise of a double-track railway and a four-lane motorway. After an Environmental Impact Assessment it was decided that the link will be by way of an immersed tunnel that will connect the German offshore island of Fehmarn with the Danish island of Lolland. The tunnel will lie in the Femernbelt in the Baltic Sea – 18 km wide – providing a direct link by rail and highway between northern Germany and the Danish island of Lolland, thence to Zealand and thence via the Øresund Bridge to Malmo in Sweden. Fehmarn Island is already connected by bridge with the German mainland, and Lolland is already connected by bridge with Zealand. Construction of The Femern Belt Fixed Link will allow more direct transport to Denmark, Sweden and Norway from Germany and vice versa.
