First North American office will focus on waste-to-energy projects

Danish engineering group Ramboll has opened its first office in North America. The office, based in New York, will focus on waste-to-energy, off shore wind and district energy projects.

Stephen Schwarz has been appointed county director of the new company.

Ramboll has been active in North America for the past seven years working as a strategic advisor and technical specialist. The group said the establishment of the New York office would allow Ramboll to offer full project support to their American clients - from planning to implementation.

Ramboll recently completed the acquisition of engineering consultants Gifford.

The opening of a New York office is in line with Ramboll’s strategy of bolstering their energy division to 700 staff by 2012 through acquisitions and business growth.  

Ramboll is providing consulting services on the new Amagerforbrænding waste-to-energy facility in Copenhagen, which will feature an external ski slope (see picture).
