NIRAS in Denmark

NIRAS was founded in Denmark in 1956 and today we are among the leading consulting engineering companies in Denmark.

If you have been to Denmark, there is a good chance that you have already encountered NIRAS. At least in terms of the projects we have been involved in. As consulting engineers, we do not affix little “Made in” stickers to our projects. If we did, you would see them everywhere.

The wind turbines you see when you approach Copenhagen Airport are one example. With our primary competencies in environmental assessment and off-shore wind turbine foundations, we in NIRAS contribute to the Danish - and global - wind-power adventure. Iconic structures such as DOKK1 in Aarhus and the DR (Danish Broadcasting Corporation)’s concert hall are also projects that NIRAS has contributed to.

Europe’s first specially designed recycling facility for ships and offshore structures has been established in a Danish harbour

When the enormous platforms from the North Sea arrived at Port of Frederikshavn last week, it wasn’t to end their days in a landfill. The platforms are going to EU’s most environmentally friendly and specially designed recycling facility, which has been established by the American company Modern American Recycling Services (M.A.R.S), with Danish advisor NIRAS as partner.
