The Fehmarnbelt link will be built as an immersed tunnel between Rødbyhavn on Lolland and the German island of Fehmarn. In contrast to a bored tunnel, an immersed tunnel is made up of hollow concrete elements, cast on land and assembled section by section to form the tunnel. The Fehmarnbelt link will be an 18 kilometre long making it the world’s longest of its type for both road and rail. A trench for the tunnel must first be dug in the seabed in order to build the Fehmarnbelt link. This trench will be up to 60 metres wide, 16 metres deep and 18 kilometres long. In total, some 19 million cubic metres of stone and sand will be excavated from the seabed. This will be used to establish approximately three square kilometres of new natural areas on Lolland and, to a lesser extent, on Fehmarn.
Major construction projects like the Fehmarnbelt tunnel, where many professionals work together and complex tasks are designed and carried out, are highly demanding in terms of safety. An objective of Femern A/S is to create one of Denmark’s safest construction sites. As the construction site will be one of the largest in Europe, where many professionals will work together on complex tasks, Femern A/S’ safety requirements will be particularly high. That’s why The Branding Boutique was asked by the Dutch consortium, Fehmarn Belt Contractors (FBC) to help in creating basic safety elements to educate everybody on site (contractors, sub-contractors and visitors) about safety measures on the construction site in order to avoid accidents, minimize the impact and ensure a fast rescue effort.
