dcsimg FEED - Ramboll Group


The Front End Engineering Design (FEED) study moves the conceptual choice from idea to viable solution that is easy to construct and operate. The primary purpose of the FEED study is to provide a cost estimate, which enables the final investment decision. Moreover, it provides the basis for the EPC or detailed engineering tender and contract. 

Our Front End Engineering Design study embraces the full project lifecycle

In the FEED study, Ramboll’s specialists take into account the entire lifecycle needs of an asset, enabling us to present robust solutions that create value from commissioning to decommissioning.

We aim for design solutions that are easy to fabricate, install, operate and maintain. Our FEED studies are therefore geared towards making the right operational and materials choices, reducing costs and risks, whilst keeping down-time to a minimum.

Deliverables in the FEED phase

Our cost estimates for FEED will be accompanied by a number of deliverables that substantiate the estimates and serve as a basis for procurement of items with long lead times. If required, the FEED study can also address environmental or regulatory aspects.

HSE and regulatory compliance

Our FEED studies also consider health, safety and environmental (HSE) aspects, and we offer risk evaluations and environmental screenings to safeguard people and the environment. Moreover, we identify legislative and environmental requirements and devise environmental programmes comprising all necessary steps for obtaining approvals and permits.

With a worldwide office network, Ramboll has intimate knowledge of national standards, regulatory frameworks, and authority requirements enabling us to act in the capacity of certified verification agent, technical authority and third party verification partner.
