New framework agreements for water resilience projects
"The collaboration culture in water Partner 2.0 reflects a strong wish to succeed together."
We are driving innovation in water management with major US and Danish utilities.
Ensuring water quality and security in cities is a global challenge, in large part due to urbanisation and climate change.
Ramboll tackles these challenges in a number of framework agreements, listed below, that establish or strengthen our long-term client relationships. Each project combines Ramboll’s specialised water knowledge and experience with local experts to create custom solutions.
By signing three new framework agreements with DC Water and WSSC Water, Ramboll strengthens its longstanding relationships with two major US utility players and continues to help the US Capital Region adapt to climate change and upgrade its water and sewer systems.
In Denmark, Ramboll won two water and wastewater agreements with HOFOR, the country’s largest utility provider, and won four out of five agreements with Novafos, another major utility.
HOFOR and Novafos selected Ramboll due to our high level and wide range of competencies and experience.
Together with Krüger, Ramboll won a six-year framework agreement with Aarhus Vand covering climate adaptation, sewer separation, life extension of assets, and major pipeline rerouting projects. Ramboll and Krüger also joined the ‘Water Partner 2.0’ partnership created by Aarhus Vand to drive sustainable innovation through collaboration and co-creation.
“The collaboration culture in Water Partner 2.0 reflects a strong wish of succeeding together. Aarhus Vand is therefore happy to get Ramboll and Krüger on board, and we look forward to kicking off the collaboration in the New Year,” says Ane Mølgaard Rasmussen, Plan & Project manager, Aarhus Vand.
Delivering value to clients
Highlighted projects with key clients in 2021
Energy infrastructure masterplan for Empire State Building
In the US, Ramboll won its largest energy masterplan project to date, an energy audit of the Empire State Plaza in New York. We will use a multidisciplinary approach to develop an energy infrastructure masterplan for significantly reducing the Plaza’s carbon footprint.
Harvesting synergies to serve our clients
2021 marked the first full year of the Henning Larsen brand operating as a part of Ramboll. Henning Larsen and Ramboll’s existing design-led disciplines were successfully combined into a new business unit for Architecture & Landscape, whose services are now delivered under the Henning Larsen brand.
Massive overhaul of Denmark's energy infrastructure
The Danish transmission system operator, Energinet, will need to retrofit or build up to 100 substations across Denmark in the next 10-15 years. Ramboll won the owner's engineer contract to retrofit the first three substations.
Pioneering research shows value of sustainable construction
With the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, we set out the business case for pursuing circularity in the built environment. In 2021, we authored a report with the WBCSD to underscore the business value of a circular economy in the construction sector.
Raising timber to new heights
The Marble Pier is a joint project from Ramboll and Henning Larsen Architects for AP Pension. At eight stories and 36 metres tall, the Marble Pier will be one of the largest timber buildings ever erected in Denmark and home to some of the most sustainable offices possible.
