Copenhagen Electric, Forum for Bæredygtig Indkøb and STRING invite you to the conference ”Environmental strategies and the challenges in implementing a greener fleet” on April 30, 8:30 - 11:30 AM.
On the 25th of March, STRING and the Danish Royal Embassy in Berlin arranged a Parliamentarian Evening on the topic of the Fehmarn belt fixed link. High level politicians and business representatives from Germany, Sweden, Denmark and the EU brought forward some very clear messages on the actuality of the project and the future of the region. The message from all the participants was unanimous: the Fehmarn belt link is not just about infrastructure; but about visions, jobs, sustainable growth and European cooperation.
New report recommends a coordinating forum for tri-national “Rail Traffic Planning Forum” from Sweden over Denmark to Germany. As of yet, no one is even talking about how to organize or finance the rail traffic, even though all experience shows a five year time frame for planning and ordering new trains is a minimum.
The Fehmarnbelt Fixed Link is a Danish project according to the state treaty between Denmark and Germany, including the design and engineering, the construction and the financing. However, this is at a first glance only: Parts of the tunnel and some of the road and rail links will lie on German soil.
