Fehmarn Link Business Conference '16
8th June 2016 in Holeby, Lolland, Denmark
Explored new business opportunities
The Fehmarn Link Business Conference focused on business opportunities arising from the upstart of the construction of the Fehmarn railway projects and the processes leading to the expected upstart of the Fixed Fehmarn Link in 2018 or 2019.
The Fehmarn Link Business Conference brought together representatives from:
Participating companies were provided with the latest information on the Fehmarn Belt project from both building owners and the winning contractors, while having the opportunities to explore new business opportunities at the mingling and networking sessions during the programme. Thus being able to establish the necessary contacts in order to become a subcontractor now or in the future.
4th March 2016 the parliamentary coalition behind the Fehmarn Belt project in the Danish Parliament, Folketinget, decided to continue the process regarding the Fixed Fehmarn Belt Link connecting Denmark with Germany in 2026. This allowed:
- Femern A/S to sign conditional contracts with the winning consortia on 30th May 2016 on the Fixed Fehmarn Belt Link, and
- A/S Femern Landanlæg to start the process of building new railway lines from Ringsted to Nykøbing Falster, with works commencing autumn 2016.
European companies interested in exploring the opportunities to become a subcontractor to the upstarting railway-projects and the upcoming construction works on the Fehmarn Belt Tunnel had the opportunity, for the first time, to meet the winning consortia and the appointed railway contractors.
