8.th July 2023 -
The construction of the Fehmarnbelt tunnel continues to present new business opportunities for small and medium-sized companies as subcontractors.
"So far, around 60 per cent of the construction contracts have gone to Danish companies. This is a surprisingly high figure, which shows that many small and medium-sized companies not only in Region Zealand, but actually all over the country, have been active in relation to the mega construction project," says Stig Rømer Winther, CEO, Femern Belt Development.
"And there are more and more opportunities to come," he emphasises, based on the business conference held by Femern Belt Development on Saturday 8th July as part of the Danish-German BeltCup event in Nykøbing Falster.
At the conference, both Femern Link Contractors (FLC), who are building the tunnel elements, portals and ramps, and Femern Systems Contractors (FSC), who have won the contract for the technical installations in the tunnel, informed about their future construction activities and thus opportunities for subcontractors.
Purchasing Manager Mathias Mundt, FLC Procurement, could inform the conference participants that Femern Link Contractors is looking for subcontractors in the areas of infrastructure support services, technical support, maintenance and operation, as well as accommodation.

Status and future perspectives
At the conference, Technical Director Jens Ole Kaslund, Femern A/S, gave an update on the current status of the tunnel project, and Mayor Holger Schou Rasmussen spoke about the opportunities that the Fehmarnbelt tunnel opens up for Lolland.
He looks forward to the possible permanent presence of the tunnel factory and the opportunities it will create for Lolland as the green energy island of the future and top-class tourist destination.
