Hydrogen has great potential as an energy carrier, a fuel, and to enable electricity storage. In addition to expanding the actual production of hydrogen, an adapted distribution infrastructure is needed. In the port of Ghent, Belgium, Sweco is working on the first twenty kilometres of what may become a nationwide system of pipelines to transport hydrogen throughout the country. Outside Helsinki, Finland, Sweco is the implementation designer for Finland’s largest air-to-water heat pump plant. The plant, which generates heat directly from outside air and waste heat from buildings, reduces CO2 emissions equivalent to the climate footprint produced by thousands of private individuals.
Digitalisation of Europe’s railway network
A new signaling system, the European Real-time Monitoring System (ERTMS) is being rolled out across Europe’s railway network. A prerequisite for increasing the automation and integration of Europe’s future high-speed trains, the system allows trains to be followed in real time rather than when passing specific measuring points, as has been the case. The system can also provide speed information, type of freight onboard, and how disruptions and delays may affect other trains. Sweco will be carrying out the ERTMS upgrade in Sweden, the Netherlands, Finland and Germany.
Our work with sustainable buildings, efficient infrastructure and access to electricity and clean water promotes sustainable development in line with the UN’s 17 global sustainable goals.
