Ramboll has an ambition to be a leading consultant in the transition of the energy sector from fossil fuels to renewables.
“Seventy five percent of man-made greenhouse gas emissions relate to energy. With our new organisation, which has been in the making even long before I joined the company, we are ready to meet the challenge of reducing emissions,” says Hannes Reuter, Managing Director of Ramboll’s energy division.
To increase focus on the energy transition and benefit from competence synergies, Ramboll is merging its Power Generation, Offshore Structures and Energy Field Development divisions under the leadership of Patrick Gilly, former Managing Director of Total E&P Denmark, who joined Ramboll on 1 September.
The new 500-person strong Energy Transition division will cover services such as hydrogen, power-to-x, gas storage, and transition of the oil & gas and power generation sector.
Ramboll is widely recognised as a leader in the design of offshore wind turbine foundations, and more than 50% of all turbines in the world rise from foundations designed by Ramboll. In order to strengthen its consulting/non-engineering services, the company will create a dedicated team, which will focus on wind & site assessment, project development & advisory and management of wind energy assets.
Hannes Reuter says: “Wind energy is a booming market and one of the growth engines in Ramboll. Today, we employ some 300 staff working solely with offshore wind, but we see potential to grow this team significantly over the next few years, not least in the US and Asia.”
