First cargo Vessel calls at the Fehmarnbelt Project’s Work Harbour
In July, MV Aasvik, was the first cargo vessel to arrive at the Fehmarnbelt tunnel’s construction site in Rødbyhavn on the island of Lolland in Denmark. The shipdocked at the work harbour, which has been built adjacent to the large tunnel factory where the elements for the world’s longest immersed tunnel will be produced.
The harbour plays a key role in the construction in that the tunnel elements will be shipped out from here and will receive millions of tonnes of building materials required at the construction site. By delivering the materials directly to the factory, both the environment and the local area will be spared from thousands of HGVs while the tunnel is being built.
"It’s a real step forwards that we can now begin to use the work harbour. The harbour is absolutely crucial for the logistics behind the construction of the Fehmarnbelt tunnel. It will ensure a robust supply route directly to the factory and protect the local environment from heavy traffic,” says Jens Ole Kaslund, Technical Director, Femern A/S.
Included in MV Aasvik’s cargo was around 7,000 tonnes of granite aggregate from Norway, which will be used for access roads at the construction site. MV Aasvik will soon be followed by hundreds of other vessels. In fact, the 500,000 m2 work harbour will be one of the busiest in Denmark.
When all six production lines at the tunnel factory are in operation, the harbour will receive up to 70,000 tonnes of building materials such as sand, gravel, cement and rebar per week. The harbour has both eastern and western docking facilities and is more than twice as large as the existing facilities in Rødbyhavn. It is therefore one of the largest harbours in Denmark.
The work harbour at Rødbyhavn is being completed just as the tunnel factory is preparing to begin casting the first tunnel element around the turn of the year.
"Earlier this summer, we arranged a topping out ceremony for the tunnel factory. The trial casting of part of a tunnel element is well underway. Now that the harbour is also in service, we are well prepared for the actual construction of the tunnel,” says Jens Ole Kaslund.
