Construction of a specialized pontoon for tunnel construction

CRIST shipyard in Gdynia is working on a specialized pontoon, which will enable the construction of an 18-kilometer tunnel that will connect Puttgarden (Germany) and Rødbyhavn (Denmark).

The unit was named Multi Purpose Pontoon, MPP for short, which is simply a multi-purpose pontoon. However, it is far from an ordinary pontoon.
