Spanish connection

Spanish Elecnor has won the contract for building the transformer station that will supply the Fehmarn connection with electricity. Thus, the lines of communication should be open and clear, as the FTC consortium (SICE-Cobra), which will be responsible for the technical installations in the tunnel, is also Spanish. And they already know each other. A little too well, in fact, if you ask the Spanish competition authority, CNMC. They have a pending cartel case, involving both Cobra and Elecnor, on its way to court.

In the meantime, the EU Commission wants to abolish the Danish RUT register, which is supposed to prevent social dumping on the labour market. But that is not going to happen, according to 3F.

Thanks for your attention and inbox place.
