To meet the needs of a growing population and future drinking water requirements, the Swedish water utility Norrvatten is planning to upgrade the Görväln water treatment plant which abstracts water from lake Mälaren and distributes it to 14 municipalities North of Stockholm.
As a result of a recent tendering process, Ramboll was appointed to lead the design management and selected for an 8-year framework contract covering the process technology and mechanical engineering for the plant. This means that Ramboll will also be delivering the actual design work for this exciting and highly important project.
“We are honored to be selected for this important assignment and excited about the opportunity to develop a modern and highly sustainable clean water process design,” says Annika Andersson Fräs, Global Spearhead Unit Manager, Ramboll Water in Sweden.
Ramboll has partnered with Syntell, an independent consulting and training partner, to provide Systems Engineering and Requirements Engineering services within the project.
The people in Bangladesh are suffering from the deadly effects of contaminated drinking water. This has been caused by naturally occurring arsenic in the earth. The Ramboll Foundation has granted financial support for a three-year research project to secure safe drinking water.
Ramboll is the lead consultant on a comprehensive project on establishing of a new treatment plant in the city of Skellefteå which ensures high-quality drinking water to all inhabitants.
The project successfully provided for the delivery of safe and reliable drinking water to the region, as well as energy conservation through savings of more than one megawatt of energy pumping.
