Linking Denmark and Sweden
Using environmental and hydraulic services to assess sediment spill risks of the Øresund Fixed Link
Øresundsbro Konsortiet had to ensure that works carried out during construction of the Øresund Fixed Link (which connects Sweden and Denmark) met strict environmental requirements. As such, they asked us to ensure the Fixed Link would not block water exchange between the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. In addition, we also conducted a monitoring campaign of local flora and fauna to ensure sediment plumes would not negatively impact them. Due to our work, Øresundsbro Konsortiet was able to finish the Fixed Link six months ahead of schedule.
