Road tunnels, Faroe Islands, Denmark

NCC to build two road tunnels on the Faroe Islands. The contract has been divided into two sub-projects.

The Faroe Islands is a Danish archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean, about halfway between Denmark and Iceland. The archipelago consists of 18 islands with an area totaling less than half of Gotland. The construction of road tunnels through the steep mountains of the islands began in the 1960s. The archipelago now hosts a total of 19 tunnels. Two of them are subsea tunnels built by NCC in the early 2000s. All other roads between the islands are connected by bridges and ferries.

NCC has extensive experience in tunnel construction, and our Norwegian operations possess this cutting-edge expertise. We will be leveraging our experience from the two road tunnels that we built on the Faroes in the early 2000s
