The Fehmarnbelt Fixed Link Project is constructing the World’s longest immersed tunnel between Lolland in Denmark and Fehmarn in Germany.

Fehmarn Belt Contractors

Leading dredging and marine contractors Boskalis and Van Oord from the Netherlands have joined forces in the Fehmarn Belt Contractors (FBC), which is responsible for various activities related to the construction of the 18 kilometre long Fehmarnbelt Tunnel.

The activity scope for FBC includes the construction of a new work harbour for the tunnel fabrication yard in Rødbyhavn and dredging the 18 kilometre long tunnel trench across the Fehmarnbelt. The dredged material will be reused to create new recreational nature areas on the Danish side of the Fehmarnbelt

About the Fehmarn Belt Link project

The Fehmarnbelt link will be an 18 kilometre long immersed tunnel. It will be the world’s longest of its type for both road and rail. The Fehmarnbelt tunnel will comprise a four lane motorway and two electrified rail tracks.

The tunnel will consist of 79 individual elements, each 217 metres long, and 10 special elements with a lower floor for tunnel operations and maintenance equipment.

It will take about 8.5 years to build the Fehmarnbelt link. Once completed it will take ten minutes to travel from Denmark to Germany by car and seven minutes by train.
