In recent years, great emphasis has been put on ensuring safety in tunnels, and the international standards ensuring that have changed dramatically. In response to these changes Ramboll constantly upgrade the services we provide within tunnel safety.

We work with ventilation requirements for air quality and safety, and make evaluations of fire fighting access within tunnels - including making simulations of conditions that can be expected during a fire. Analyses can then be made of fire and smoke spread, and together with evacuation modelling and planning will act as input for a final Risk Analysis. This expertise resides in separate department, Risk and safety.

Engineers discussing the Fehmarnbelt tunnel

Fehmarn: The world's longest road/rail tunnel

In the future Scandinavia and the rest of Europe will be connected by the world's longest road and rail tunnel.

Nordhavnsvej – Copenhagen Municipality

Nordhavnsvej – the largest road construction project in Copenhagen in 50 years

The project for “Nordhavnsvej” is the first stage of a new road to Copenhagen’s Nordhavn (North Harbour). Nordhavn is an old industrial and port area, planned to be developed into a new urban area in the north-eastern part of Copenhagen. When fully developed, the urban area is planned for 40,000 residents and 40,000 workplaces.

Ramboll is responsible for planning and design of the stretch of tunnel from Söder Mälarstrand to Södra Station on the Stockholm City Line and for designing tunnel ventilation, general ventilation as well as smoke and heat ventilation.

The Stockholm City Line: Efficient travel across the city

Ramboll is giving expert advice in how to build a railway tunnel, and how to improve the punctuality and the frequency of future rail traffic in Stockholm.
