Femern A/S is undertaking the Fehmarn Belt Fixed Link with a length of 18km connecting Fehmarn, Germany to Lolland in Denmark.

The project involves the construction of a tunnel north, a tunnel south, and will consist of an electrified, double-track railway and a four-lane motorway with emergency lanes and emergency exits way.

The project further involves the installation of emergency power supply cables, ventilation systems, fire extinguishing equipment, signalling systems, lighting systems, tunnel surveillance systems, and safety equipment.

Initially, a cable-stayed bridge of 18km to connect German offshore island of Fehmarn to Lolland in Denmark and replace the existing Scandlines operated ferries was planned, however on November 30, 2010, the bridge proposal was replaced by the immersed tunnel as the latter would present fewer construction risks although the financial cost would be broadly similar.

The immersed tunnel design was provided by the consortium of Ramboll, Arup Witteveen+Bos Advisory Ingenieurs, and Tunnel Engineering Consultants. The Femern A/S has also appointed Tunnel Engineering Consultants as engineering consultants for the project.

In March 2009, the construction work of the project was ratified by Denmarks parliament and in June 2010, the construction work of the project was ratified by German Government.

In February 2011, the Danish Ministry of Transport agreed with this recommendation on immersed tunnel. In May 2011, Femern A/S recommended that Rdbyhavn shall be designated as the production site for tunnel elements for the future Fehmarnbelt Fixed Link.

In June 2011, the recommendation made by Femern to locate production site for the tunnel elements at Rodbyhavn was agreed by the Danish Government.

In August 2011, Femern prepared a revised cost estimate and timetable for the construction of an immersed tunnel solution beneath Fehmarnbelt and it was made public in April 2012.

The project is being tendered as four construction packages including the dredging of the seabed and land reclamation package, northern section tunnel package, southern section tunnel package and construction of portal structures, ramps and associated land facilities package.

The scope of dredging package is to dredge a trench of 18km long with 80m wide of 12m deep in the Fehmarnbelt, where the tunnel will be placed. The resulting 15million m3 seabed from the dredging works will be reused for land reclamation, primarily along the coast of Lolland and, to a lesser extent, along the coast of Fehmarn.

The scope of northern section tunnel package is to undertake half of the actual tunnel construction and consequently build half of the tunnel element construction facility in Rodbyhavn. The scope of southern section tunnel package is to construct the remaining part of the tunnel elements.

The scope of portal structures, ramps and associated land facilities package is to construct the tunnels two portals as well as cut-and-cover tunnels on land in Germany and Denmark. It also includes construction of entry and exit ramps and connection to the existing road and rail on land, small buildings and bridges as well as all aspects of completion, including asphalting of all roads and wall cladding throughout the entire tunnel.

In October 2012, the Femern A/S has invited the pre-qualification document from the interested companies to participate in the four tender packages with January 18, 2013, as the submission deadline.

A total of 24 different companies from across the world forming nine different joint ventures have registered their interest for the prequalification process and in May 2013 all of them were prequalified for the project.

In October 2013, a construction contract to expand connecting road of Rdbyhavn was awarded to Barslund A/S and also tenders for the main construction works were issued for four sections with early 2014 as the submission deadline.

On October 18, 2013, Femern submitted the entire documentation to the State Company for Road Construction and Transport of Schleswig-Holstein and is waiting for planning approvals.

In December 2013, Femern A/S has invited pre-qualification document for the new major contracts for the electrical and mechanical installations and deadline for registration was January 14, 2014.

In September 2014, Bravida Danmark A/S, Elektrobudowa SA and Siemens A/S have been pre-qualified for substation contract.

In September 2014, Salini-Impregilo-Samsung-Bunte JV, Immersia and OHL-Daewoo-Daelim JV have been pre-qualified for the construction contract of tunnel north, south and portals and ramps.

In December 2014, Femern A/S signed a Fehmarnbelt Environmental Monitoring and Consultancy (FEMO), a US$50 million framework contract with DHI Denmark consortium.

Over the next seven years, FEMO will monitor the environmental impacts of construction activities on the sea, air and land to ensure compliance with the limits set by the authorities.

Among others activities, FEMO will operate a hydrographic monitoring system with two main buoys and several near shore buoys; control sediment spill from the expected 18 millionm3 of dredging works; monitor underwater sound and impacts on marine mammals.

The FEMO consortium also includes DHI Denmark, Orbicon, BioConsult SH GmbH & Co.KG, MariLim Aquatic Research GmbH, DHI GRAS A/S, NIRAS Gruppen A/S, Institut fr Technische und Angewandte Physik GmbH, WTM Engineers GmbH, Mller BBM Schalltechnisches Beratungsbro and Fiskekologisk Laboratorium.
