Within our Environment and Climate business area, the aquatic environment and the harbours around our coastline comprise an important area of focus.

All environmental assignments in the aquatic and harbour environment are unique, however certain sets of issues are recurrent:
• Dredging of clean and unpolluted sediment
• Turbidity
• Management of clean and unpolluted sediment
• Receiving of grey- and blackwater
• Surface water and snow management
• Sample extraction and analysis

Recurrent sets of issues, but with different conditions depending upon:
• Scope of the activities
• Requirements of governmental authorities
• Opposing and co-operating interests
• Site-specific conditions
• Recipient’s sensitivity and status
