Ramboll to Design Greenland’s New Port

Ramboll, an engineering, design and consultancy company founded in Denmark, has won a contract to design a new container port of 60,000 square meters in Nuuk, Greenland. The port will be built by the Danish contractor Per Aarsleff A/S.

Over the next five months, a project team of Ramboll employees representing various engineering disciplines will design the new container port. It is a so-called greenfield project with no previous land or sea infrastructure, which makes the project quite complex.

This calls for power cabling and connection, 360 meters of quayside, dredging of the port basin, construction of 4,700 square meters of port facilities – as well as the removal of 300,000 cubic meters of mountainside to make way for a suitable construction site.

We have set up a dedicated 20-man project team consisting of engineers with expert knowledge of port design, heavy duty pavements, utilities, as well as professionals with local insight and stakeholder access from our Nuuk office,” said Morten Thorhauge Boolsen, Head of Department, Ports and Geo Structures at Ramboll.

The container port in Nuuk is the first major international port design project after the establishment of Ramboll’s global port sector in early 2015.
