Fehmarn Innovation Link shall make Danish construction world leaders

The Danish Minister of Business, Simon Kollerup, inaugurated the Femern Innovation Link in Rødbyhavn, which will make Denmark a world leader in green and sustainable mega-infrastructure.
In the new centre, experiences from the Fehmarn project are to be collected and made available to a wider circle of Danish companies, educational institutions and business development actors.

The initial actors behind the new centre are: the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Roskilde University (RUC), vocational school Zealand, as well as Odense Robotics, We Build Denmark, Business Hub Zealand and Femern Belt Development. 

Plan of action ready for million-euro contract on Fehmarn project

The Spanish consortium SICE-Cobra is now ready with the plan of action for the implementation of one of the major contracts on the Fehmarn project, the so-called TEM contract worth approximately 700 million euro.

Division manager, José Manuel Olivares Villafranca, presented the plan to the 350 participants present at the Fehmarn Link Business Conference ´22 (29.09.2022) in Rødbyhavn.

For the execution of the TEM contract, SICE-Cobra has founded the company “Femern Systems Contractor” (FSC) with headquarters on Lolland. The contract includes the electrical and mechanical interior of the tunnel, including ventilation, lighting, instrumentation and automation processes and safety systems.

The work will be carried out in the period from December 2022 until a few months after the commissioning of the tunnel at the end of 2028.

Plan for permanent tunnel factory taking shape

In the Danish Parliament, there is broad political agreement to extend the life of the factory that will supply the tunnel pipes to the Fehmarn connection.

Originally, the plan was for the factory to be demolished after the last Fehmarn element is produced.

But now, politicians would like to see the factory continue to produce elements for other projects.

These could be i.e. the new harbor tunnel in Copenhagen, a future Kattegat connection, a new Limfjord connection and/or a fixed connection between Als and Fyn.

Production of elements for future Danish energy islands and supplying foreign infrastructure projects have also been mentioned as possibilities.

Mega-project Femern Belt tunnel shooting up

The birth of the Femern Belt tunnel is indeed an impressive sight!
To the east of Rødbyhavn, the entrepreneur consortia Fehmarn Belt Contractors are in full action, constructing the working harbour and docks that will receive the materials for the production of the tunnel elements, and from where the finished elements will be sailed out to their final position in the Baltic Sea.
To the right is a picture from the construction site, as it appeared at January 2023.
We will be following the construction work closely with regular photo updates of the huge construction site, thanks to our good cooperation with Femern A/S.
