Operations and Asset Management

Creating value for asset owners and operators by maximising performance, extending lifetime, and lowering operational costs

Market leader in managing infrastructure and offshore assets

Good asset management improves infrastructure resilience and extends the lifetime of assets. This helps reduce the need for new assets, which in turn lowers resource consumption and environmental impacts.

We are market-leading in asset management for roads, bridges and tunnels, carrying out all types of surveys and inventories in the field, as well as analyses.

In the real estate sector, we optimise property maintenance by using software solutions that combine data from different sources to identify and reduce inefficiencies.

Within renewables, Ramboll has decades-long experience supporting windfarm owners and operators in delivering safe and reliable operation at the lowest possible cost. The offshore environment is harsh, and the structures need to withstand waves, wind, soil conditions, and other environmental factors. An optimised maintenance regime can create massive cost savings.


We support our clients in managing the assets people rely on in their everyday lives — from the roads they drive on, the buildings in which they live, and the wind turbines that keep the lights on.

Solving challenges across the asset lifecycle

Our asset management experts solve challenges for asset owners, asset managers and operators during all stages of an asset’s lifecycle, from early development to planning, engineering, transportation, installation, commissioning, warranty, out of warranty, and end-of-life.

If involved from the earliest stages of a project, we develop lifecycle plans for operational readiness, ensuring clients have the right materials and competences from the outset, including an overview of the project’s main risk implications, as well as control mechanisms for all services that can be contracted to a third party.

For existing assets, we provide surveys and inventories, rehabilitation and maintenance planning. We perform all necessary assessments, while working in accordance with local geographic and climatic conditions. The aim is to ensure efficient operations with the highest level of operational assurance.


We look at assets through a strategic sustainability lens, providing clients with sustainability strategies and carbon roadmaps, and help set science-based targets for their asset portfolio.

Using smart software to monitor the details of how their assets operate in real life – and in real time – we help clients minimise maintenance cost, disruptions, and lower CO2 emissions.

Core digital tools for operations and asset management

These tools help provide a complete and real time picture of the condition of the asset, helping inform decisions that extend lifetime, lower cost, and improve performance:

Life Cycle Cost Analysis (LCCA)

LCCA provides an in-depth review of how construction and design choices affect costs throughout the life of an asset. Ramboll offers LCCA analysis for all types of assets, identifying cost drivers and risks.

Monitoring and management systems

Ramboll has developed IT systems to monitor and report maintenance activities dynamically on the web. These systems provide a channel for all parties involved in asset management to plan, evaluate, and follow progress of planned and ongoing works. Our Asset Management services rely on several tools and technical methods such as RST, SMART, Airpave and Web services.

Non-destructive testing (NDT)

Ramboll uses NDT on site to acquire detailed knowledge about a structure. We screen large areas and quickly learn about the condition and remaining bearing capacity of the structure in its natural element. NDT is a powerful tool used for quality assurance of asphalt, concrete, natural stones, steel, and other materials.

True digital twin

Ramboll applies years of sector expertise and a multidisciplinary approach to problem solving when building the digital model of the physical asset and analysing data. Combining data analytics and sector-specific knowledge, we deliver operational insights that help clients make informed decisions on maximising the performance of assets.
