FPT Industrial engines power the construction of the longest immersed tunnel in the world

Turin, 30th January 2024. FPT Industrial, the brand of Iveco Group (EXM: IVG) specialised in advanced propulsion technologies, is playing a pivotal role in the construction of the Fehmarnbelt tunnel, an 18-kilometre-long tunnel that will provide the fastest connection between Scandinavia and Central Europe and is set to be the world’s longest immersed tunnel.

FPT Industrial, through its distributor Bimotor S.p.A., has supplied its state-ot-the-art F36 Stage V engines for power generation to CGM, a leading producer of generation sets. These gensets are currently in operation at the massive Fehmarnbelt construction site, which includes the largest concrete factory in the world.

The Fehmarnbelt tunnel, co-financed by the European Commission and due for completion by 2029, is a monumental project consisting of 79 standard and 10 special elements. The construction of each element requires a significant amount of reliable, ready-to-use energy, and the project has entrusted this to the CGM gensets powered by FPT Industrial engines.

The construction of the Fehmarnbelt tunnel is an important addition to Europe’s sustainable transport network of the future. It will offer the quickest and most direct route between Denmark and Germany, while reducing CO2 emissions and alleviating congestion on existing roads and railways. Contributing to this transformative project is fully consistent with FPT Industrial’s commitment to sustainability and further validates the unique benefits of the brand’s power generation solutions.
