ENVIRONMENT

Orbicon conducts Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) for all types of projects. Through a close dialogue with our clients, we create solutions that maximize the value and minimize the environmental impact. We can conduct EIA for your entire project, or just specific parts of it, from the construction of road systems and offshore wind turbines to large projects concerning climate proofing and raw material extraction. Whether above or below water, a comprehensive and high quality EIA is always critical for the approval and progress of your project.
