Companies invited to prequalify for Fehmarnbelt contract

Femern A/S has invited companies to apply for pre-qualification to supply the electrical and mechanical systems for a planned 18-kilometre immersed tunnel between Germany and Denmark.

The fixed link tunnel, which will connect the German island of Fehmarn with the Danish island of Lolland, will reduce the current journey time by ferry from 45 minutes to seven minutes by rail.

TheĀ Fehmarnbelt tunnel is due to open in 2021.
