Fehmarnbelt conditional contractors chosen

16 March 2016

DENMARK/GERMANY – The preferred bidders for the Fehmarnbelt Fixed Link have been named. Client Femern said it had chosen a joint venture consisting of Vinci Construction Grands Projets, Per Aarsleff, Wayss & Freytag, Max Bögl, CFE, Bachy Solétance, BAM Infra, BAM International, Dredging International, and Cowi.

The aim is to sign conditional contracts in mid-May, on the understanding that binding contracts will be signed when the German construction permit is in place.

The Fehmarnbelt project aims to construct an 18km-long immersed tunnel between Denmark and Germany. Past estimates have put the project at USD 7.3bn.
