A/S Femern Landanlæg was established on 16 November 2009 as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sund & Bælt Holding A/S. The company’s capital stands at DKK 510 million with share capital of DKK 500 million and a premium of DKK 10 million. The share capital has been provided through a contribution of Sund & Bælt Holding A/S’ shareholding in Femern A/S. As a consequence‚ A/S Femern Landanlæg is the parent company of Femern A/S.
The company has been formed to administer the ownership and financing of the Danish hinterland infrastructure for a fixed link across the Fehmarnbelt. The planning work for the rail link will be carried out by Banedanmark while planning work for the road section will be undertaken by the Danish Road Directorate.
The co-ordination of the planning work for the entire link‚ i.e. the coast-to-coast link‚ which is administered by Femern A/S and the Danish hinterland infrastructure‚ is undertaken by Sund & Bælt Holding A/S. Planning work relating to the rail links began in 2009.
