After several years of preparation, Femern A/S submitted a 10,000 page application to the responsible German authority in Schleswig-Holstein on 18 October 2013 for the construction of an 18 km long tunnel between Rødbyhavn and Puttgarden.
A public consultation of the project will now be carried out in Germany as part of the approval process. The German approval and a Danish Construction Act are the prerequisites for construction work getting underway in 2015 as planned.
Delivery of the application in Kiel was followed up by a press meeting. Pictured here are CEO Claus F. Baunkjær, Femern A/S, in the presence of the Schleswig-Holstein Transport Minister, Reinhard Meyer (SPD) on the right and Femern A/S Project Director Claus Dynesen.
