To make the Copenhagen metro more resilient to extreme weather, Ramboll is assessing its current level of protection and develop new climate adaptation initiatives.
Since the establishment in 2002 the Copenhagen metro has become a huge success, and the characteristic driverless white trains are now an important vehicle for the expanding number of commuting Copenhageners. To ensure stable and reliable operations in the years to come, Metroselskabet (the company running the metro) has asked Ramboll to reevaluate the initiatives planned to adapt the metro to the future climate.
The assessment will show if it is necessary to raise the total level of protection. Moreover, Ramboll will make clear recommendation on measures to be considered in addition to the ones already planned for.
To ensure that the latest scientific findings are included in the work, Ramboll has teamed up with Karsten Arnbjerg-Nielsen, a leading professor and international expert in climate change impacts at the Technical University of Denmark.
