The Fehmarnbelt Fixed Link Project consists of a motorway and rail connection of about 18 km in length 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) joint venture, 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 trench for the future tunnel over a distance of 16 kilometers. The dredged material will be reused to create a new recreational nature reserve area 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 the use of the tunnel operation 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.
