Nine consortia prequalified for Fehmarnbelt

Project promoter Femern has announced that nine consortia have been prequalified for the four contracts to build the Fehmarnbelt submersed tunnel between Germany and Denmark.

Femern has said that three to five consortia have been prequalified for the four contracts which cover construction of the tunnel north; tunnel south; portals and ramps; and dredging and land reclamation.

”We’re very satisfied with the outcome,” said Femern technical director Steen Lykke. “These are strong consortia and we’re convinced that they will all be able to take on the task. We therefore anticipate healthy competition with regard to methods, innovation and price.”

Tender documents will be sent to the prequalified consortia last this year and Femern expects to receive preliminary bids in 2014. Evaluation and competitive dialogue will follow with final prices and bids agreed in time for the results to be included in Danish parliament’s work on the Construction Act, which is expected to be to be discussed towards the end of 2014.
