Ramboll is the lead consultant on a comprehensive project on establishing of a new treatment plant in the city of Skellefteå which ensures high-quality drinking water to all inhabitants.

Access to safe drinking water is a basic human right and a key component of an efficient policy for health protection. However, five years ago the city of Skellefteå in Northern Sweden suffered from Cryptosporidium in the drinking water. Cryptosporidium is a microscopic parasite that causes the diarrheal disease, so for seven months the inhabitants had to boil their drinking water before use.

The municipality decided to replace the old and worn waterworks with a new treatment plant that treats the water with artificial groundwater recharge followed by oxidation, filtration and disinfection to ensure high drinking water quality.

Ramboll is the lead consultant on the project which is the largest of its kind in Sweden, and our project team includes experts from 10 different offices in Sweden.

The Skellefteå project is a unique and rather complex project where Ramboll makes a real difference by bringing our strong capabilities within water resources and water treatment into play.
