The Mongstad energy project demonstrates advanced natural gas Combined Heat and Power (CHP) production integrated with ground-breaking Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) projects.
Bangladesh’s more than 160 million inhabitants share less electricity than Denmark’s 5.5 million, and frequent power cuts are the rule rather than the exception. Ramboll is supporting the country’s development by helping establish three major power plant units that will contribute to ensuring reliable electricity for the citizens.
Nordjylland Power Station, unit 3, is a 400 MWe coal and oil fired unit commissioned in 1998. In addition to producing power, the unit supplies heat to two district heating companies in the town of Aalborg.
Sandvik CHP Station in Växjö, Sweden delivers heat and electricity to the Municipality of Växjö.
In Immingham, UK, Graham Construction appointed Ramboll as special adviser for the design and development of the Immingham Renewable Fuels Terminal (IRFT). Today, it stands as the world’s largest port terminal for wood pellets.
In 2015, Ramboll entered a contract for the bioconversion of one of DuPont’s production plants in Denmark.
First CHP plant to mix inland fuel such as waste, straw, wood chips and bio gas.
One of the worlds most efficient biomass power plant for district heating is situated in Lillestrøm near Oslo, Norway. Ramboll was consultant to Akershus Fjernvarme AS and assisted the client with the planning and procurement of the new plant.
Located on the coast just south of Copenhagen, Unit 2 of Avedøre Power Station uses natural gas (Ngas), oil, straw and wood pellets for simultaneous generation of heat and electricity. The plant is one of the most energy efficient plants in the world, as it exploits up to 94 percent of the energy in the fuels and operates with an electrical efficiency of up to 49 percent.
In 2016, DONG Energy’s Avedøre Power Plant Unit 1 will deliver green heat and power to the citizens of Copenhagen. Besides a bio-conversion the project also comprises a lifetime extension which is planned for 2018. Ramboll advises on the project that constitutes a major and highly efficient biomass conversion scheme.
Studstrup Power Station in Aarhus is about to reach the end of its service life and will now undergo extensive renovation. Ramboll is advising the plant's owner, DONG Energy, in all project phases for this work from analysis through to commissioning.

Ramboll is providing engineering consultancy services to the conversion of Lynemouth Power Station from coal to biomass. The converted plant will export around 390MW of low carbon electricity to the national grid.
Ramboll is assisting Hrvatska Elektropriveda d.d., the national electricity utility in Croatia, in upgrading the EL-TO Zagreb power plant.
Ramboll was selected by Oman Power and Water Procurement Company SAOC to be the technical advisor to the Electricity Off-taker of the Salalah IPP Power Plant which is aimed at fulfilling the demand for a more reliable and cost-efficient power supply in Oman.
Eneco has a vision to make the production of heat to the district heating network more sustainable to their 52,000 households and 1,100 business customers in Utrecht and Nieuwegein. Consequently, Eneco decided to implement a high-efficiency biomass plant with a total capacity of 60 MW heat at the existing combined heat and power plant Lage Weide in Utrecht.
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.
The City of Copenhagen aims to become the world’s first carbon-neutral capital by 2025. Greater Copenhagen Utility HOFOR is supporting the City in achieving this goal through several initiatives, including the conversion of Amagerværket power plant from fossil fuels to biomass.
Ramboll has completed two major Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) projects on one of Vattenfall’s power plants in Denmark.
Ramboll provided engineering consultancy services to an international food producer on one of their Australian enterprises. The objective of the project was to construct a new biomass boiler to replace an existing natural gas boiler.
Ramboll contracted to the Electricity Authority of Cyprus (EAC) in July 2018 to provide consultancy services associated with the retrofitting of emissions abatement technologies and natural gas infrastructure and boiler conversions at Vasilikos Power Station.
Ramboll was appointed by Statoil (Equinor) in Norway to carry out the FEED phase of the refinery heat project at the Mongstad combined heat and power (CHP) plant.
In a joint venture with French partner Sofregaz, Ramboll will develop an integrated gas-to-power project for Morocco’s state power and water utility ONEE.
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.
