Major Power Station Conversion taking Shape

With enough reinforced steel for one quarter of the Eiffel Tower and enough concrete for 57 highway bridges, the conversion of Skærbæk Power Station is well under way. Over the weekend, the power station’s neighbours had the chance to see the construction work up close. Heavy-duty steel elements have just been shipped by sea from India directly to Skærbæk Power Station’s own quay.

Experience from the Great Belt and Øresund will help make the Fehmarnbelt fixed Link safer

At around 18 kilometres in length, the Fehmarnbelt fixed link will be the world's longest immersed tunnel for rail and road traffic. Such a long tunnel under water requires special safety measures and is why appropriate systems and emergency service procedures are essential to the design of the whole tunnel. Safety has been incorporated into the project down to the minutest detail – from the very first drawings when the treaty on the fixed link was signed by Denmark and Germany in 2008 and up to the present day when tenders for the tunnel from nine consortia are being evaluated by the client, Femern A/S’ experts and consultants.
