THE FEHNMARBELT TUNNEL – THE GREEN SHORTCUT BETWEEN SCANDINAVIA AND CENTRAL EUROPE

MEP Marianne Vind kindly invites you to a seminar presenting the world’s longest immersed tunnel and its impact on European mobility.

 

The 18 kilometre long Fehmarnbelt tunnel is now under construction between Denmark and Germany across the Fehmarnbelt.

 

When the Fehmarnbelt tunnel is completed, the journey through the tunnel will take 7 minutes by train or 10 minutes by car. Train passengers and freight trains passing through Denmark will save a 160km detour and thus reduce emissions from traffic.

 

The Fehmarnbelt tunnel will operate on a CO2-neutral basis, run on 100 percent green energy and use energy-efficient technology. 

 

The Fehmarnbelt tunnel and railway are an important part of the Scandinavian-Mediterranean Core Network Corridor. The project receives co-financing from the EUunder the framework of its CEF Programme.

 

The Fehmarnbelt tunnel project is participating in "The Track to a successful TEN-T" exhibition in the European Parliament 11-14 October 2022.

 

Please join us for a presentation of this unique project and a discussion of its impact on European mobility and the green transition of freight transport. Drinks & snacks are served.
