Safe and reliable water supply
Ensuring the high quality of drinking water requires constant focus on the water supply intake as well as the water treatment processes at the waterworks. With design of a large number of waterworks both based on groundwater abstraction from well fields and surface water treatment. Our key expertise covers process design, layout and detailed design as well as evaluation of biological, chemical and physical processes at existing waterworks. Hence, we can help you with both new facilities and with plant modernisation related to surface water intake and treatment as well as well field establishment and groundwater abstraction and treatment.
Our mission is to follow each project through all stages, from conceptual ideas and analysis, through process dimensioning and conceptual design, detailed design and tendering to construction and commissioning of the plant. Our preferred role is to act as lead consultant, where we take responsibility for process design, mechanical engineering and can use our resources within other technical disciplines such as civil, structures, HVAC, electrical engineering and automation.
Strategic water supply planning
Everywhere, there is an increased demand to water utilities, not least as a consequence of strengthening the national drinking water legislations and EU requirements. Our long and broad experience in supporting water utilities and developing water supply plans helps us transform these increased requirements into practical solutions. Our customers benefit from our knowledge and experience when we assist them in the creation of water and action plans.
Ramboll’s experienced specialists in water planning work closely with local governments and regularly involve politicians and administrative personnel. We apply the most recent Geographic Information System (GIS) tools in our work and supply our customers with customised digital water plans.
A vital part of providing safe and reliable water supply is to establish a solid emergency plan to ensure the right level of emergency preparedness for the most critical situations. An on-site visit is made at the waterworks going through processes together with the utility operators and an in-depth discussion with the managers may indicate the weakest or most critical points in the supply chain. These findings are transformed into setting up emergency measures for the water utility and thereby eliminate or significantly reduce the risks for the drinking water consumers.
