Water, Energy and Industry
With intense rainfall and flooding, our cities are focused on water supply and water infrastructure. Sweco has developed three water strategies to ensure a healthy future and prevent system failures. The first deals with managing cities’ health challenges, the second with giving more space to nature, and the third with reducing water consumption and increasing wastewater re-use and purification. These three strategies are highly relevant and a reflection of Sweco’s work with water projects across the globe.
Together with Anglian Water, Welsh Water and Skanska, Sweco has developed a ground-breaking model for visualizing a project’s carbon and financial costs.
From fossil fuels to renewable energy
Our energy experts work with the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy, reliable and efficient power distribution, and infrastructure expansion for new fuels such as electricity and hydrogen. Several projects, for example, involve harvesting as well as storing solar and wind energy, while also reducing consumption by smarter energy usage. Our consultants also actively support the accelerated expansion of hydrogen in the overall energy supply in multiple markets.
Sweco is involved in the historic work of building an artificial energy island about 100 km off the west coast of Denmark. The energy island is being constructed for the large-scale production of offshore wind power.
Transformation of industry
Sweco’s engineers and industrial experts contribute to the sustainable transformation of industry by delivering resource-efficient plant design, designing electricity and automation systems for the future, and streamlining warehouse, hospital, and distribution logistics flows. Our expertise is used in areas including the transformation of the steel industry. Sweco is advisor to H2 Green Steel and Hybrit in Norrbotten, Sweden, which plan to achieve full-scale fossil-free processes for steel production by 2030 and 2035, respectively.
On behalf of VoltH2, Sweco’s expert teams in Belgium and the Netherlands managed the design, planning and permit process for two large-scale hydrogen plants, which will use wind power to produce green natural gas.
