Leading consulting group with a 360° approach
Contaminated soil and ground water can pose a risk to human health and nature and represent important financial liabilities. A systematic approach to manage the risks and liabilities related to contaminated sites is therefore of utmost importance.
COWI has worked for more than 30 years in all areas of contaminated soil and ground water and has a staff of more than 150 specialists in contaminated sites management in our offices in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Central and Eastern Europe, China and the Arabian Gulf and a number of trusted local partners around the world.
We have an extensive and comprehensive list of field equipment including a mobile soil gas laboratory and a GeoProbe MIP unit.
Our scope of services includes inventories of contaminated sites, intrusive investigations with sampling and analysis, risk assessment, development of conceptual models, detailed design of remediation, tendering, works supervision and monitoring. We have extensive experience with remediation including advanced in-situ remediationtechniques such as airsparging and vacuum extraction, thermal remediation with steam, enhanced reductive dechlorination and chemical oxidation.
We work for private and public entities including ministries, regional and local authorities, multinational industries and project developers and handle contaminated soil and ground water in relation to brownfield development, new infrastructure projects and risk reduction on industrial sites.
Development and communication of knowledge are central elements in COWI’s work with contaminated sites. Using the newest research results, COWI develops ideas and consulting services and arranges courses and seminars for our customers and colleagues.
We have an extensive collaboration with universities and technological partners, which enable us to be among the leading consultants within our field.
