Norway ship tunnel: Norway to spend $315m building world’s first ship tunnel - TomoNews

OSLO, NORWAY — The Norwegian Public Roads Administration believes floating underwater tunnels could be the key to shorter driving times in the country.

Norway is home to more than 1,100 fjords, the deep glacial water inlets that divide land masses. Getting over one means taking a ferry, and that can add hours to a car trip.

Because fjords can be up to a mile deep, building a bridge over the waterway or tunnel underneath is not very practical.

But Norwegian engineers think they can build a quicker way. They want to float concrete tunnels up to 100 feet below the ocean’s surface.

This would allow ships to sail unobstructed by bridges. Floating pontoons would hold the concrete tunnels in place. Engineers hope the ambitious $25 billion project will be completed by 2035.

World's First Floating Tunnel Project In Norway

World's first 'floating tunnel' proposed in Norway. The submerged roadway would help speed travel along the nation's rugged west coast. Steep, icy mountains and deep fjords make western Norway famously scenic, but they also make life difficult for motorists. With seven ferries along the way, the almost 700-mile trip between the cities of Kristiansand in the south and Trondheim in the north typically runs about 21 hours — at an average speed of about 30 miles an hour.

But that could soon change. A $40-billion infrastructure project being planned by the Norwegian government aims to replace the ferries with bridges, conventional tunnels and what could be the world’s first “floating tunnel.”

The submerged roadway — essentially a pair of concrete tubes submerged about 100 feet below the water’s surface — would help cut the Kristiansand-Trondheim travel time almost in half while minimizing the environmental impact on the area. The tunnel would be made up of a pair of concrete tubes submerged about 100 feet under the water’s surface.

Experts say the floating tunnel concept is especially suited for deep fjords surrounded by steep mountains — features that make it difficult to build bridges or drill tunnels.

“With bridges that span long distances, you need arches and suspensions at certain points, but for a submerged floating tunnel, if you do it absolutely correct and balance the weight of the structure with the buoyancy of the structure, it can go on forever,” said Nils Erik Anders Rønnquist, a professor of structural engineering at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, who is consulting on the project for the government.

Though the floating tunnel is buoyant, it isn’t actually floating. The tubes would be stabilized by cables tethered to the seabed or by pontoons floating on the surface at roughly 800-foot intervals. With most of the hardware far below the surface, the tunnel wouldn’t interfere with the movement of ships and boats and even submarines, said Arianna Minoretti, chief engineer for the Norwegian Public Roads Administration.

The tunnel would be stabilized by cables tethered to the seabed or by pontoons floating on the surface. Like conventional tunnels, the floating tunnel would have escape routes that motorists could take to return to the surface in case of an emergency. And Minoretti said preliminary research regarding the proposed tunnel’s safety has been reassuring.

“We have done simulations for big explosions in the tunnel, we’ve checked for impacts of submarines, we covered scenarios where a trawler might hook onto the tunnel, and we even considered if a ship might be sinking at the surface and hit the tunnel on the way down,” Rønnquist said. “I would say things are under control. It’s a very robust structure.”

But Michael Mooney, a civil and environmental engineering professor at the Colorado School of Mines, said the trickiest part of designing and building a first-of-its-kind large structure would be anticipating all the possible hiccups.

“You want to make sure you think of all the potential load scenarios or things like wave motion,” said Mooney, who isn’t involved with the Norwegian project. “The big challenge is recognizing where all the issues are and not being surprised by something.”

Kevin Chang, a professor of civil and environmental engineering at the University of Idaho, offered a similar assessment of the challenges involved in building such a tunnel. “At the end of the day, the engineering community tends to be on the conservative side,” he said. “But with novel ideas, somebody has to sort of stick their neck out to say: We think this is the best solution even though it’s unproven elsewhere.”

Plans call for the floating tunnel to open to traffic in 2050. And while it might be the first structure of its kind, it might not be the last. Rønnquist said engineers in Italy and China are pursuing similar concepts.

Norway: Eiksund Tunnel - the world's deepest undersea tunnel

A ride across Norwegian County Road 653 near Volda, through the world's deepest undersea tunnel, the Eiksund Tunnel ( -287 m )

World's First Floating & Largest Underwater Tunnels In Norway: The $47Bn Highway Mega Project

Norway on a project to build world's first floating & largest underwater tunnels : The $47Bn coastal highway.

A surprising and almost impossible form of
transportation infrastructure could be the answer to
traveling across fjord-ridden Norway.

To complete the 680-mile drive under current
conditions,you would have to allow 21 hours for
travel. Why? Traveling north-to-south across the
country require eight ferry trips across fjords.
Norway's fjords are too deep and too wide to support
bridges. well, above water ones that is.

Norway has committed $25 billion to the construction
of a fully submerged, floating tunnel beneath the
Sognefjord, a body of water more than 4,000 feet
deep and 3,000 feet wide. It would link two disparate
regions and be the first of its kind in the world.

The tunnel could cut trip time to 10.5 hours by
reducing the need for ferry rides. The project is
expected to be completed by 2023. Each tunnel
would be suspended under 100 feet of water, held
up by pontoons on the fjord's surface and possibly
an anchor bolted to the bedrock. Each fjord would
be equipped with two tunnels: each two-lane,one for
traffic flowing in each direction.

Underwater tunnels aren't a new idea for Norway.
The country has 1,150 traffic tunnels,35 of which
are located under shallow bodies of water. Fjords,
however, can be a mile deep, creating a challenge for
conventional tunnels.

Norway has so far committed $25 billion in funds to
the project, which is expected to reach completion
by 2035' There's still some hard work ahead for the
engineers involved: such a system has never been
built before, and no one is exactly sure how the wind,
waves, and water currents in the fjords might affect
the structures.

The total cost to upgrade the current highway that
cross Norway is estimated at $47 Billion. It will be
one of the largest and challenging engineering
tasks ever for architects and engineers.
