The use of water as a source of energy is widespread, and around 20 per cent of the world’s electricity comes from hydro power. In Sweden, it has played a key role in the country’s energy system since the beginning of the last century.
Ramboll has been commissioned by Sorgenia with a Technical Due Diligence (TDD) of a number of coal fired units, a number of CCGT’s and a number of hydro power plants in Italy.
Assessment of the potential to upgrade biogas to biomethane for gas grid injection or use as a vehicle fuel.
Maabjerg BioEnergy, which is one of the world’s largest biogas plants, was initiated by a group of local farmers together with local energy supply companies.
Ramboll evaluates the geothermal heat potential and geological structures for three energy companies in the center of Jutland, Denmark.
Ramboll has established a solar heating system for production of domestic hot water.
In Oslo, both solid and liquid waste has since commissioning in 2012 been delivered to the Romerike Biogas plant (RBA) for pre-treatment. Now, Ramboll has been appointed by the city of Oslo to optimize the existing plant design and processes in order to obtain a more resilient facility and biogas production.
In the Danish town of Vojens, a 70,000 m2 solar heating plant is being established. The heat is absorbed to heat water, which is then transported to a 200 million litre pit, for storage. Here, the water is saved for district heating consumers to use during the autumn and winter season. Vojens District Heating and Ramboll have designed and constructed the record breaking project.
Solarge was a European co-operation project to open up markets for large solar thermal plants
Norway's largest biogas upgrading plant set to deliver vehicle fuel.
In South Denmark a large-scale biogas plant is under development. The plant will treat liquid manure, household waste and energy crops from 120 farmers, and Ramboll advises on design and approval.
Construction of a new gas filling station for the supply of biomethane as a vehicle fuel and LNG backup storage.
Feasibility study for Aquamarine Power into the widespread use of composite materials in its Oyster wave power device.
State-of-the-art renewable energy project
Switching from coal to biomass challenges the operational stability of pulverised fuel burners. Differences in fuel properties affect ignition and losses (Loss On Ignition). A combustion model for pulverised biomass has been developed, providing accurate predictive capabilities of burner operation.
Ramboll is involved in providing structural and installation design of the foundation support structure for the 10MW tidal turbine test array.
Horizons Environment — part of Scottish Water — is considering investing in the equipment necessary for its existing anaerobic digesters to be able to accept organic waste. This will require the upgrade of the digesters, which form part of the sludge treatment centre at Cumnock Waste Water Treatment Works, East Aryshire. Ramboll prepared a feasibility study, which forms the business case for investment.
The City of Cambridge located north of Boston, Massachusetts, USA, shares increasing global concerns about climate change and the many challenges it presents. Cambridge has adopted a Climate Protection Action Plan with the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2050.
Ramboll is responsible for the pre-feasibility study, conceptual design and implementation on geothermal project in Viborg
With focus on material recovery and energy production, Ramboll provides a wide range of consultancy services throughout the establishment of a new sorting and biogas facility in Vestby, Norway.
The plant will receive up to two thousand wet tonnes of municipal sewage sludge per day, transported by road from eleven sewage treatment works. This sludge will be treated in four incineration streams, consisting of fluidized bed furnaces with heat recovery and flue gas cleaning equipment. Ramboll is ‘Independent Consultant’ for the process elements of the plant, working closely with another consultant in Hong Kong.
DONG Energy's new biofuel plant in Kalundborg, Denmark, produces second generation bioethanol. Ramboll has played an important role in the construction of the plant. The advanced 3D modelling in particular has been crucial for finishing the project ahead of the COP15 conference.
The Sludge Treatment Centre at Dalderse in Falkirk, Scotland, is part of a large waste water treatment works dating from the 1960s and owned by Scottish Water. In 2010, Ramboll investigated using biogas by-products from the works to fuel vehicles or supply the gas grid. Ramboll Energy's current feasibility study determines the measures necessary to implement co-digestion of commercial and industrial waste with sewage sludge, and updates our earlier findings on exploiting the biogas as a commercial energy resource.At Dalderse, 432 tonnes per day of sewage sludge from several sites is digested in two mesophilic anaerobic digesters, where bacteria break down the sludge to produce methane and other by-products. Anaerobic digestion is standard UK practice for rendering a harmful mat ...
With the introduction of new technologies, biofuels could make out a sustainable strategy in the Norwegian aviation industry by 2025. But it takes by-product sales to make it profitable, states Ramboll report.
Ramboll is Client Consultant to the Skolkovo Foundation, established by the Russian President to develop Skolkovo Innovation Centre. Covering an area of 400 ha just outside of Moscow, the Centre is supposed to be Russia’s response to Silicon Valley.
