DENMARK | Infrastructure

Inspired by the thread about Croatian Infrastructure I though I would start one similar for Denmark.

This is for all things like:

Motorways and other roads
Railways
Airports
Bridges and Tunnels
Shipping, Ferries and Sea Ports
Energy

I'll start by reposting some posts from various infrastructure related threads to get it started.

Passenger Rail


We have 2 large passenger train operators in Denmark, the huge old one DSB, and Arriva. There's also a number of smaller railtracks with locally owned trains, but I wont show any of them now.

Lets start with Arriva.



They operate on a number of the tracks in Jutland. They used to use some old trains of DSB, but they got new ones recently.

Number of sets: 29
Year in service: 2004
Max speed: 120 km/h

Class: MR (old ones hired from DSB)
Number of sets: 15
Year in service: 1978
Max speed: 140 km/h
Power: 478 [kW]





And now DSB



DSB still operates most of the Danish railnetwork, and they have tons of different trains. I'll just show you some of them.

DSB electric trainsets:

DSB ordered trainsets:

Here we have the new IC4 trains which aren't operating yet, they are delayed. These new trains are developed by Italian Ansaldobreda and DSB.

Class: MR
Number of sets: 83
Year in service: 2005/2006

These trains has no driver:



Facts about Danish rail from www.bane.dk (Banestyrrelsen, who controls the Danish rail network):

2.323 km rail tracks
2700 Trains on the Danish tracks every day (= about 1 million each year)
38.000 departures and arrivals on the stations each day.

Passengers in 2003:

S-Tog: 88,3 million
Metro: 20,3 million (2004 it was 34 million passengers)
"Normal" trains: 77,1 million

In all on the Danish railnetwork in 2003: 185.859.000 passengers

Bridges and Tunnels

(edited for photos)

The longest bridge first (by span):

The Great Belt Link (Storebæltsbroen) is be the biggest bridge complex in Denmark. It consists of 2 bridges and 1 tunnel, and connects funen and zealand (18 km), and it was built in 1988 - 1998.

The 3 parts are:

The West bridge: Combines road and rail, 6.611 m.
The East tunnel: Rail only, 8.024 m.
The East Bridge: Road only, 6.790 m, but with a span of 1.624 m (currently 2. longest in the world). The 2 pylons does each reach 254 m above sealevel.


Øresundsbron between Denmark and Sweden:

Total lenght is about 16 km. It consist of a tunnel and a bridge. The tunnel is 3.5 km and the bridge about 8 km. There's a small island between the bridge and the tunnel.
Built in 1995 - 2000

Farøbroerne:

Connects Sealand and Falster and consists of 2 bridges.

Lenght: 1.726 m and 1.596 m
Built: 1980 - 1985


Storstrømsbroen

Locted just east of Farøbroerne we find this one.

Lenght: 3.199 m
Built: 1933 - 1937



Sallingsundbroen

Bridge in the northern part of Jutland.

Lenght: 1,717 m
Built: 1973 - 1978


Vejlefjordbroen

Bridge crossing the Vele Fjord, just outside Vejle.

Lenght: 1.712 m
Built: 1975 - 1980


Den Nye Lillebæltsbro

Car only bridge that connects Funen and Jutland.

Lenght: 1.700 m
Built: 1965 - 1970


Svendborgsundbroen

Connects Funen and Tåsinge (small island).

Lenght: 1.216 m
Built: 1963 - 1966


Den Gamle Lillebæltsbro

Also connects Funen and Jutland, rail and car bridge.

Lenght: 1.178 m
Built: 1929 - 1935

Some extra steel from the construction was used to built a 175 meter observation tower in Odense, but it was blown up during wwII



Langelandsbroen

Connects Langeland with Siø.

Lenght: 774 m
Built: 1960 - 1962


Dronning Alexandrines Bro

Connects Zealand and Møn

Lenght: 746 m
Built: 1939 - 1943


And the proposed Bridge between Denmark and Germany:

Fehmern Belt Bridge

Facts:

19 KM long
It will have 2+2 highway and 2 rail tracks.
It will take about 7 years to build, 2008-2015 is what they work with right now.
The price will be some 4 billion € (but it will probably end up being more, as projects this big often are)


These are the longest bridges here, but there is a lot more smaller ones.

(also some info in the Danish Bridges thread )

Airports


Copenhagen Airport

Information
Passengers 2004: 19.034.585 (+ 7.5 % over 2003)
Operations 2004 (start or landing): 272.518
Area: 11,8 km2
Runways: 3 ( 3600 m, 3300 m and 2800m - Capacity if 83 operations pr hour)

Routemaps for Copenhagen Airport:

Normal Europe:



Charter Europe:



Normal World:



Charter World:




And to the photos, let's start with Copenhagen. I hope others will post pics of all the Scandinavian ones of interest (also some smaller ones ):

(all © Copenhagen Airport)


































Billund Airport

Information
Passengers 2004: 1.849.799
Operations 2004: 50.827
Runways: 1 (3100m)

Denmarks 2. largest Airport, Billund, is still very far from cph. They also had an increse in number of passengers last year though.

Most of the traffic are to foreign destinations, only 159.193 passenger on national routes in 2004.

Billund airport opend a new termanal in 2002, replacing the old one. Their rutenet (direct flights to the red dots):




And the photos, first 3 are from the official website (they're from the opening and just before, that's why it's quite empty on some of them):







The rest are my own:















































Aalborg Airport

Information
Passengers 2004: 643.970
Opetations 2004: 23.147
Runways: 2 (one asphalt 2650 m and one concrete/asphalt 2650 m)

3. Largest in Denmark is Aalborg Airport (I actually though it was Århus). In 2004 it had a total of 643.970 passenger, which is a small increse from 2003. Their new terminal opened in 2001.

Their routenet is quite small, they only have:

Aalborg - Copenhagen
Aalborg - Billund
Aalborg - Oslo
Aalborg - Helsinki (via Olso)
Aalborg - Kristiansand
Aalborg - The Faroe Islands (summer route only)

Photos from official website:











Århus Airport

4. largest in Denmark is Århus Airport with 524.506 passengers in 2004. That's a decrese from 2003 on -9,5%. The decrese is mainly because Ryanair closed their Århus - Stockholm route. The airport is also located pretty bad, some 40-50 KMs from Århus.

Routenet:



I can't find any images from the airport, but it's pretty old anyway


There has in the last years been a lot of discussion in Århus about building a completely new airport. The new one would be located much closer to Århus than the current one in Tirstrup. I doubt it will ever happen though. Here are a few renderings of how the people behind it imagine it:

Of course I don't mind, the hole point was to make other people post things too

Yep this first photo is just north of Copenhagen. It's in Gentofte municipality. I've actually heard that Gentofte is building some residentials mainly for immigrants in the "triangle" between the 3 HEAVYLY used road. Now that's just evil

Great! I haven't found any information about our ferries yet, so it's cool you post these I'll try to look for more....

Nope I don't know about any Cruise ships, maybe some of the Copenhageners can prove me wrong though.

I'm currently trying to get more information about Ferries here. It's kind of a jungle, since there are a lot of differnet lines. I guess that's no wonder though with 408 islands Anyway, it's quite hard to find something usefull...

Okay the ships will have to wait. Now to something else...

Oil and Gas Platforms

The Danish Energy market is also kind of a jungle, but I found some nice images of Oil and Gas platforms from the North Sea. These are all owned/operated by Mærsk Olie & Gas A/S, which is a part of the huge Mærsk Group. Mærsk was givin the right to be the only operator in the North Sea until 2040 or something like that (only the Danish part of course).

And the photos, all from Maerskoil.com:

I doubt that. If you look in the background you'll notice some highrise looking buildings. None of those on the Faroe Islands as far as I know

But nice photos yes I would surely like to see more of the Mærsk ships, some of them are GIGANTIC

So many cool things in one thread, well done, Mik
Perhaps it would be not a bad idea to create similar threads about each country, this is really interesting.

Ferries




Just a bit of information about this company, Mols Linien. They have 3 rutes, all from Jutland to Zealand. Here's the line map:




They have 6 ferries in all, 2 of each. Not the biggest ones, but they're quite fast (4 of them atleast):
