In a joint venture with Pöyry Germany, ÅF Denmark has entered into an agreement with Femern A/S (the Danish Ministry of Transport) for technical consulting services for the 19 km long Fehmarn Belt Tunnel between Denmark and Germany.
The contract is worth about EUR 6 million for three years of consulting work. The agreement also includes the option of a further eight years in the project, valued at EUR 19 million. It is estimated that ÅF and Pöyry will earn roughly equal amounts from the agreement.
The agreement principally covers consulting services for electricity, systems for lighting, communication, ventilation, drainage, fire protection, intelligent traffic control, traffic signs and some technical installations in control centres and customs stations.
ÅF Denmark won the project thanks to its very robust reference portfolio in terms of Danish tunnel and infrastructure projects. The Fehmarn Belt Tunnel will substantially reduce travel times between Scandinavia and the rest of Europe.
