thinkproject has secured a contract with Femern AS as the Building Information Modeling software for the construction of world’s largest road and rail Fehmarnbelt tunnel. An important part of the European transport network, total construction is budgeted at EUR 6.9 billion. thinkproject was chosen as a partner for this project due the company’s ability to offer a complete SaaS BIM solution and 20 years of proven experience as the industry leader in construction intelligence. Providing a highly sophisticated and secure SaaS solution, thinkproject’s BIM platform matches perfectly with the project’s requirements. From BIM and CAD management to workflow and audit support, thinkproject’s BIM solution is able to support the Fehmarnbelt tunnel project throughout every stage of the construction process.

The planned 18 kilometres immersed Fehmarnbelt tunnel will be a significant advancement to Europe’s transportation infrastructure and is scheduled to open in 2028. It will provide a much faster connection between Copenhagen and Hamburg reducing travel time by 1-2 hours. This enhanced connection between Germany and Denmark will create new opportunities for freight transport, increase cross-border integration of the labour market, and improve general travel between Scandinavia and Central Europe.

Femern AS is a Danish planning company charged with preparing the Fehmarnbelt Tunnel across the Baltic Sea between the Danish island of Lolland and the German island of Fehmarn. Femern AS is in charge of planning and providing the basis for regulatory approval of the project on behalf of the Danish government. Femern is activating the main construction contracts with Femern Link Contractors with effect from 1 January 2021. This means that construction of the large scale tunnel element factory at Rødbyhavn can get underway.

November 2019 saw the start of the main construction phase of the Fehmarnbelt tunnel when the contract with the Dutch contractor consortium, Fehmarn Belt Contractors, for the new work harbour at Rødbyhavn came into force. The harbour is expected to be completed by the end of 2021. Moreover, in March 2020, the EU Commission approved the financing model for the entire Fehmarnbelt project.

The way has therefore been cleared for work to begin on the large tunnel element factory and the portal and ramp facilities at Rødbyhavn. The work harbour is the gateway to the construction of the tunnel element factory as it is from the work harbour that the 73,000 tonne tunnel elements will be shipped out to the Fehmarnbelt
