Fehmarn/Germany & Lolland/Denmark

The Fehmarnbelt Fixed Link is an important element in the green transitition for the European transport sector. The link will be an 18 km immersed tunnel between Rødbyhavn on Lolland in Denmark, and Puttgarden on Fehmarn in Germany, creating an efficient, green transport corridor that connects Scandinavia with the rest of Europe. When complete, the tunnel will be the world’s longest immersed tunnel for cars and trains; it is scheduled to open in 2029.

The construction work is taking place on land and at sea. Doka will be responsible for the construction of the tunnel entrances and ramps on both the Danish and German sides. The scope of work includes, among others, the construction of cut-and-cover parts of the tunnel, the buildings at the entrances and exits, and the ramps, as well as light attenuation of the tunnel, various structures and landside civil work.
