How reliable are the profitability analyses for the fixed link across the Fehmarnbelt?

Financing model and cost-benefit analysis put to the test

Scandlines ApS commissioned DIW Econ to prepare an analysis of the fixed link across the Fehmarnbelt.

The available analyses cannot confirm these assessments. On the contrary, they show that the economic viability of the fixed link is at risk.
