THE GREAT BELT LINK HOW TO ACHIEVE ZERO ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ON THE BALTIC SEA

Jacob Steen Moller, Niels-Erik Ottesen Hansen

Abstract


The Great Belt Link crosses the Great Belt (Denmark) which is the major strait connecting the Baltic Sea with the North Sea. A law passed by the Danish Parliament imposes an environmental design criteria of 'zero far field effect' on the Link. This paper describes how the challenge of zero effect is met by compensation dredging. The compensation dredging is designed by the use of highly sophisticated numerical models.
