The Norwegian electricity consumption is expected to increase by over 50% in 2050. As a result, the electrical grid needs to be expanded to accommodate the massive amounts of increased green energy in the future. Rambøll has won a significant contract with the Norwegian Statnett to expand the electrical grid, with a value of up to 1 billion Danish kroner.
This task is Rambøll’s most extensive in the energy sector in Norway to date. The agreement consists of three framework contracts with a total value of 520 million Danish kroner (130 million kroner per year) over the next four years. It will employ 200 of Rambøll’s experts full-time during this period. An option for an additional four-year extension means that Rambøll’s total fee could amount to 1 billion Danish kroner over eight years.
In Denmark, Rambøll is already actively assisting Energinet, the Danish counterpart of Statnett, in expanding, upgrading, and constructing the Danish electrical grid to prepare for the power demand from future electric vehicles, data centers, and Power-to-X projects. Rambøll has already won contracts from Energinet in this area worth over 600 million kroner.
Energy is a rapidly growing business sector for Rambøll, and a key goal in Rambøll’s strategy is to become a global industry leader in the green energy transition. Currently, Rambøll’s energy business employs 2,000 experts, and the company expects this number to increase to 3,000 by 2025.
