More than 50 years experience
NIRAS was founded in 1956 by the two engineers Nielsen and Rauschenberger. NIRAS has been represented in Greenland since 1960 and has completed a large number of projects in Greenland. For many years Greenland was the greatest market area in NIRAS.
When NIRAS Greenland began operating, the projects were mainly within building, civil works and water supply. Today NIRAS' main expertise areas in Greenland are hydroelectric power, airports, environment, transport and physical planning. Our knowledge also encompasses a thorough familiarity with prices for larger civil works projects.
From many years of experience in Greenland and various surveying studies we have a thorough knowledge of all parts of Greenland, from Nanortalik to Qaanaaq and Station Nord.
NIRAS has a number of key staff members, who have more than 30 years' experience with projects in Greenland and who have been resident in Greenland for a number of years. Furthermore, we have younger engineers, economists, socio-economists and town planners with experience from projects in Greenland.
