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.
