Water, Energy & Industry Consultancy

At the heart of everything we plan, design and construct is a commitment – and passion – for building a more sustainable society. A combination of leading-edge water engineering, energy management and industrial infrastructure consultancy is therefore critical to shaping a truly climate-friendly future. At Sweco, we transform complexity into simplicity for our clients.

Water consultancy

Our work extends from water and wastewater treatment, water infrastructure, groundwater expertise through to flood resilience and biosolid management. Our water specialists are world leaders in their field, which means they can – individually and collaboratively – help you meet the increasing demands for safe, clean drinking water, waste recycling and flood mitigation, through sustainable creative solutions.

Industrial consultancy

Whatever the application, the aim of any industrial site or network must be to achieve optimum efficiency in production and carbon impact reduction. From advisory and planning support to operational and technological asset management and a full range of environmental planning services, we can help businesses meet their green goals while maximising core site performance.

At Sweco, inspired by our Scandinavian roots and driven by innovations from across our wider group, we can help with both the technical solutions and the strategic advice you need, based on specific site challenges – and opportunities.

Our approach to water, energy & industry

With intense rainfall and flooding, our cities are focused on water supply and water infrastructure. In the Urban Insight report “Healthy Water Cities: From Sewer to Health Booster” in October 2021, Sweco proposes three water strategies to ensure a healthy future and prevent system failures. The first deals with managing cities’ health challenges, the second with giving more space to nature, and the third with reducing water consumption and increasing wastewater re-use and purification. These three strategies are highly relevant and a reflection of Sweco’s work with water projects across the globe.

From fossil fuels to renewable energy

Our energy experts work, often in combination, with the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy, reliable and efficient power distribution, and infrastructure expansion for new fuels such as hydrogen. Several projects, for example, involve harvesting as well as storing solar and onshore or offshore wind energy, while also reducing consumption by using energy more smartly. Our consultants also actively support the accelerated expansion of hydrogen in the overall energy supply in multiple markets.

Transformation of industry

Sweco’s engineers and industrial experts contribute to the sustainable transformation of industry by delivering resource-efficient plant design, designing electricity and automation systems for the future, and streamlining warehouse, hospital and distribution logistics flows. Our expertise is used in areas including the transformation of the steel industry.

Together with our clients and the collective knowledge of our 21,000 engineers, consultants and other specialists, we co-create solutions to address urbanisation, capture the power of digitalisation, and make our societies more sustainable.​ With international multi-disciplinary teams, we can call on the right insight and technical capability at the right time from across Buildings, Infrastructure, Advisory & Planning and Compliance.​
