It will be the Danish shipping giant, Blue Water Shipping, that will be responsible for the operation of the working ports on Fehmarn and Lolland, respectively, during the construction of the Fehmarn Tunnel. The port in Rødby was put into use this summer, and next year the first ships with deliveries for the construction can call into the port at Puttgarden.
Brande is about as far from the nearest harbour as you can get in Denmark. Therefore, an unusually long truck was needed to deliver the last more than 27-metre-long load-bearing steel column to the element factory, which arrived on Tuesday.
In the meantime, construction is proceeding largely according to plan – at a net price of €15.5 million per day.
Thanks for your attention and have a great weekend.

In the first nine months of 2022, Femern A/S has had project expenses totaling 565 million euros. This appears from the quarterly report from Sund & Bælt. Inflation and interest rate increases have more than doubled the state holding company’s financing costs compared to the same period last year.
