The Fehmarnbelt project

The Fehmarnbelt link is set to be groundbreaking in a number of respects. The tunnel will be the most extensive structure built in Denmark and will set a number of records.

On 3 September 2008, the Ministers of Transport of Denmark and Germany signed a state treaty regarding the establishment of a fixed link across the Fehmarnbelt. In 2011, an immersed tunnel was chosen as the preferred technical solution.

Femern A/S

Femern A/S is tasked with designing and planning a fixed link across the Fehmarnbelt between Denmark and Germany, including the linking points to the Danish landworks.

As part of the project preparations, Femern A/S is also responsible for putting the construction works on the coast-to-coast link out to tender.

The coast-to-coast link is a Danish owned facility, 100 per cent financed by the Danish state while Denmark and Germany are each responsible for financing and upgrading the respective transport facilities on land.
