Drawing on 30 years’ proven experience in the Arctic together and 400 experts based in 21 offices across the region, Ramboll works with customers on mining, oil & gas, transport, buildings, energy, water, waste, urban development and society-building initiatives.

Ramboll combines an integrated multi-disciplinary engineering and management service with a strong commitment to delivering environmentally and socially responsible outcomes that create enduring benefits for our customers and Arctic communities.

 

Meeting Arctic challenges

The proliferation and often short term nature of development initiatives is already prompting new challenges for the Arctic such as general trends towards urbanisation and a movement away from traditional occupations. This calls for holistic planning and sustainable outcomes that support society, for instance, by creating attractive places to live and lasting employment opportunities.

We act as a strategic partner for customers to address such challenges that are specific to the Arctic in three main areas:

  • Climate – We develop solutions for the transport, buildings, industry, mining and energy sectors that are resilient to Arctic’s extreme climatic conditions.

  • Environment – Ramboll helps minimise human interference with the Arctic’s sensitive natural environment by leveraging world class competences in environmental impact assessments and water and waste management.

  • Society – To navigate stringent legal requirements and ensure the rights and customs of indigenous people are protected, Ramboll’s extensive Arctic network enables effective stakeholder management and authority handling.

Significant projects in the arctic region

Stimulating sustainable development for the people of Greenland

A multidisciplinary team of Ramboll engineers and Ramboll Management Consulting experts will equip Greenlandic companies to become competitive subcontractors for large natural resource projects. The competitive platform will ensure sustainable development for Greenlandic society.

Greenland can save millions on harbour expansion

As the nerve centre of logistics, Nuuk Harbour is too small and can deny Greenlandic growth. According to a new socio-economic analysis from Ramboll Management Consulting, Greenland can earn an estimated 80 million Euros by expanding the harbour.

The world largest pipelay vessel will install the record breaking 36" Polarled pipeline

Polarled: Record-breaking subsea pipeline crosses the Arctic Circle

The Polarled pipeline project, which crosses the Polar circle, is part of the plans for developing fields further north in the Norwegian Sea. The purpose is to ensure gas transport capacity for gas volumes from planned and future field developments, such as the field developments of Aasta Hansteen, Linnorm and Zidane.

Harpa Concert and Conference Center

Harpa Concert and Conference Center: Designed in 3D

Harpa Concert and Conference Center has been hailed as a symbol of Iceland’s economic dynamism and has since it opened in 2011 hosted a range of world-class congresses and concerts. The concert and conference center is part of a larger master plan for the area around Reykjavik’s harbour, intended to attract tourists and artists. But the building is more than merely beautiful; however, it is also CO2-neutral, obtaining its energy from Iceland’s geothermal resources.

Arctic 360°, Roundtable

Workshop about challenges and solutions for the societal development in the Arctic
23 – 24 October 2013

Toppilansaari Park, Oulu

Toppilansaari Park

Oulu is a town tucked away at the furthest reaches of the Baltic Sea, just one hundred miles south of the Arctic Circle. But it is not the sleepy stopover one might expect. It is the city with the highest rate of economic growth in Finland. Consequently, there is a high demand for attractive, affordable housing. Toppilansaari, a peninsula between the Oulu harbor entrance and the open sea, is the site of the Finnish Housing Expo 2005. The housing is laid out as a sustainable pilot project. A green park forms a central core for the relatively spread-out housing elements.

Kirinskoye, Sakhalin – Installation engineering in the Arctic region

Kirinskoye is the first offshore field in Russia to utilise a subsea system for natural gas production. The field holds over 100 billion cubic metres of gas and 11.4 million tonnes of gas condensate.  


The Kirinskoye gas and condensate field is part of the 'Kirinsky block' in the Sea of Okhotsk and is one of the main development priorities for Gazprom, the world's largest gas producer.The field is part of a Russian Federation strategy for development of an integrated gas production, transportation and supply system to the regions of Eastern Siberia and the Far East.

Fakken

Fakken Wind Farm

Troms Kraft Produksjon AS has for decades been a major player within hydroelectric power production in Northern Norway. Their experience and focus on renewable energy has made it obvious for them to look into a role also within wind power production.

The homes of tomorrow

A new type of houses is emerging in the wake of the focus on climate change and energy costs. These so called passive houses are seen as the solution to the challenging task to drastically reducing energy consumption in buildings.

Greenlandic Airports

In a country as large as Greenland, the only way to travel between towns is often by air. The airport development and maintenance done by Ramboll is therefore incredibly important to society there.
