Ramirent and Zeppelin Rental are pleased to announce the successful closing of the formation of their joint venture Fehmarnbelt Solution Services A/S announced 17 July 2014. With the transaction, two of Europe’s leading rental and construction site solution providers combine their resources and expertise to serve the cross-border Fehmarnbelt tunnel construction project due to start summer 2015.
“We are pleased to have received the approval from the competition authorities for the joint venture together with Zeppelin Rental. Our joint venture is well-positioned to be selected as rental supplier for the project and is ready to commence activities to offer our services to the different companies working on the tunnel construction project”, says Magnus Rosén, President and CEO, Ramirent Group.
