Ramboll undertakes both large and smaller-scale projects. Our services extend into all stages of planning, design, construction, operation, maintenance, and training. Our services include:
- Feasibility studies
- Field investigations
- Coastal hydraulic assessments
- Shoreline Management
- Port master planning
- Port planning
- Port terminal planning
- Port infrastructure planning
- Environmental Impact Assessments
- Risk assessments
- Port design projects
- Port extension projects
- Port rehabilitation projects
- Marina projects
- Dredging and fairway projects
- Port maintenance.
Based on the elaboration of consistent development scenarios, we prepare feasibility studies and provide expert consultancy in port master planning. The feasibility study typically includes technical investigations, traffic analyses, financial analyses and environmental impact analyses. Further, Ramboll will assist with conceptual and preliminary designs, authority management, and development policy.
The life span of existing structures can be prolonged at a reasonable cost, if rehabilitation work is initiated in time. If not, rehabilitation may become both extensive and expensive, often requiring the replacement of entire structures.
Environmental impact assessments
Today, environmental considerations are integrated into the decision process of most construction projects in coastal zones. It is therefore often necessary to conduct an environmental impact study, in the form of an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA).
New developments of coastal zones and more extreme variability in the oceanographic and meteorological conditions impact on existing assets and set new demands. Ramboll conducts planning and design of coastal protection solutions, and provides expert consultancy for shoreline management.
Proper port asset management is highly complex and requires the integration of several disciplines and services. However, by streamlining the procedures and utilising known and tested methods from other fields, it is possible to keep it simple and stay within budget.
This approach will also allow for forecasting of future costs, increase safety, and minimize the risk of unexpected break-downs.
