3D laser and scanning
Ramboll has worked with 3D laser scanning and 3D surveying both onshore and offshore since the late 1990s. This technology enables us to create ‘as built’ assets digitally, thereby safeguarding against geometrical errors and ensuring new designs are precisely tailored to fit existing layouts.
When used as a design basis, our accurate 3D models prevent unexpected issues and potentially hazardous risks in the installation process. Safety critical elements such as hot work can also be kept to a minimum when items can be seamlessly installed.
Moreover, Ramboll owns explosion proof (EX proof) laser scanners, and we have considerable experience working with high risk explosive environments offshore.
Ramboll’s dedicated in-house 3D surveying team and our engineers continually share knowledge about the project. We also fine-tune our surveying approach to ensure practical application in the engineering processes. Our surveying goes beyond data recording to become a streamlined process designed to frontload the engineers with accurate information.
Our 3D point clouds are compatible with all CAD programs and are easy to understand. We also provide Netview solutions for online data access.
For onshore projects, Ramboll offers surveying and field data gathering services to create a complete project basis. We provide specialist surveying services including land surveying, 3D mapping of underground utility, and 3D laser scanning and modelling.
We apply our 3D laser scanning & survey services for Offshore platforms, Floating production, Pipelines & subsea, Onshore production & refining, Terminals, storage and pipelines and Gas & LNG.
Using state-of-the-art equipment for laser scanning and survey in an offshore environment, Ramboll performed the first ever laser scanning in an area, which was categorised potentially explosive.
FPSO Teekay Petrojarl I was operating on the Glitne Field for Statoil, and was planned to operate for another five years there. In turn, the owner of the FPSO, Teekay Petrojarl Production, was evaluating to extend the lifetime of the FPSO with 15 years.

In the summer of 2014 a joint venture between Ramboll Oil & Gas and Semco Maritime were rewarded an EPC contract for the provision of onshore and offshore services to Hess Denmark’s platforms in the Danish North Sea.
In 2007 Ramboll Oil & Gas' survey department performed twentyfive 3D laser surveys for Maersk Oil on the company's modification projects.
In 2012 Maersk FPSO awarded Ramboll Oil & Gas an Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract comprising enhancements to the jack-up drilling rig, Maersk Inspirer.
