Power and Utilities

Geosyntec has a long history of providing engineering services for new and upgraded power transmission facilities. We work with clients to address complex problems involving our environment, natural resources, permitting, and civil infrastructure. We understand the regulatory environment and use our expertise to help clients face their particular challenges.

With many years’ experience in Sweden and worldwide, Geosyntec understands the environmental and engineering issues associated with the generation, transmission, and distribution of electricity, and we often help clients with issues involving nuclear power, wind power, hydropower, biofuels, fossil fuels, and peat.

Our expertise is widely recognised; power producers and industry organisations often call on us to participate in strategic responses to ash spills, create guidance documents, and teach client in-house courses. In addition they often reach out to us for third-party oversight and design optimisation/verification for projects including geotechnical investigations, power plant decommissioning, dam/dike/pond integrity evaluations, nuclear facility flood protection plans, and the closure and re-use of ash storage facilities.

In addition, we have a nuanced understanding of the water-air nexus in waste reduction, we interpret the complexities of the multiple regulatory changes underway, and we provide good management in ecological, social, cultural, and economic terms.


Our clients understand environmental and occupational safety and health risk management is a vital component of operational excellence. Geosyntec's environmental management team builds compliance solutions, distinguishes between potential and actual environmental risks, and develops strategies to decrease energy and water utilisation.

Environmental and health & safety (EH&S) systems are essential for private and public sector clients who are committed to achieving high standards of EH&S performance and compliance. Our documented management systems allow clients to identify, prioritise, and efficiently manage potential EH&S risks associated with their operations using a plan, do, check, act framework to ensure continuous programme improvement. We work alongside clients to help them manage risk and reduce environmental liabilities to align them with their financial and stewardship goals. Our expertise in compliance, permitting, and auditing across disciplines allows us to proactively identify compliance obligations and opportunities to improve clients’ compliance records.

Clients trust Geosyntec to provide construction management services at complex project sites around the world using proven technologies, innovative methods, and best-in-class applications. This has been a core service area for our teams of engineers, geologists, and technicians for more than 25 years. In fact, we have developed many of the methods, standards, and procedures in use today at solid waste management facilities, manufacturing plants, energy production plants, and major transportation infrastructure sites under construction or scheduled for demolition across Europe and in Malaysia.

Whether it is decommissioning and remediating a former power generation site or a conducting a geotechnical investigation for an offshore wind farm, Geosyntec possesses the in-house scientific, engineering, and construction management expertise to design, permit, and implement cost-effective, practical solutions for clients.
