Femern A/S has signed a contract for delivery of a transformer station for the operations of the Fehmarnbelt Tunnel. The contract has a value of approx. DKK 300 million.
The transformer station will be one of the largest facilities of its type in Denmark. It will supply power for the Fehmarnbelt Tunnel’s railway and 10 km railway on Lolland as well as the tunnel’s electrical installations. Elecnor will begin work on the transformer station itself from 2023. It will be completed in stages and is expected to be ready in 2028.
The contract was won by the Spanish Elecnor, which has substantial experience from similar projects across Europe. The contract commits Elecnor to high energy efficiency and to ensuring that the transformer station will have the capacity to serve the electric modes of transport of the future, including charging stations for electric vehicles.
"Today’s contract signing represents yet another milestone in the construction of the Fehmarnbelt link. We’re very much looking forward to working with Elecnor on the important task of preparing the tunnel for CO2 neutral operations in 2029", says Jens Ole Kaslund, Technical Director, Femern A/S.

The TBM named "Lilia" is ready to start mechanically excavating one of the longest sections of the main tunnels of the Brenner Base Tunnel on Austrian territory, after having successfully completed the Factory Acceptance Test, the final customary test, at the Herrenknecht workshops at Schwanau, in Germany.
Grängesberg Exploration Holding AB – Grangex – presents the results of a Feasibility study (the Study or FS) for the recommencement of mining at their Dannemora Iron Mine, with a carbon free focus. The Study establishes, among more, that Dannemora can be a producer of high-grade iron ore concentrate with a very low carbon footprint, having strong pre-requirements to become a preferred supplier for green steel producers. The Study was prepared and signed by SLR Consulting Limited.
