Together with Danish architecture studio Dorte Mandrup and Bisgaard Landscape, Ramboll will help build the project ‘Kromet’ – a high-rise on Gothenburg’s riverfront – which will be the tallest timber structure in Sweden.
A group of colleagues have designed a new type of face protection screens that can be produced with standard office supplies. The design is open source and available to all. Ramboll is now producing the first batch of 20,000 face protection screens, which will be donated to health workers in Denmark this week.
Dr. Jens R. Valeur will co-chair the session Making Environmental Impact Mitigation Work. He will also present the paper Performance Standards for Oil Spill Risk, which he co-authored with Lars Wahl Andersen. The paper outlines the different approaches taken for oil spill risk assessment in Environmental & Social Impact Assessments (ESIAs) and in Quantitative Risk Assessments (QRAs), respectively, and the background for these. The large oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010 triggered a change in regulations worldwide, requiring operators to integrate oil spill risk analysis in their QRAs and in the design of their Emergency Response setup. The paper examines the challenges caused thereof, mainly related to the fact that consequences of an oil spill are more complex and difficult to quantify than the consequences in traditional safety studies.
Task force ZERO is the largest and most recognized safety conference in Denmark. The event gathers companies, research institutions, and authorities to discuss improvements to the working process and safety of offshore installations in Denmark and the rest of the world.
