Railway tender with no competition

The last 30 kilometres of the Ringsted-Fehmarn railway will be upgraded to double track, and a new station will be built at Holeby. BaneDanmark put the task out to tender with an estimated price of 70 million Euros. But there was only one offer from the major contractor M.J. Eriksson, and the price ended up being almost 120 million Euros.

Water is needed for concrete production. A lot of concrete is needed for the Fehmarn tunnel. Tap water from the waterworks is not an unlimited resource, and therefore “grey” water – i.e. purified waste water or rainwater – is an obvious and sustainable alternative.

Thank you for the place in the inbox and for your attention.
