  • Description:
    A Swedish company is offering environmental consulting services within limnology and marine biology. The company performs biological investigations of aquatic environments in lakes, rivers and seas. They collect and analyse samples from water, perform environmental impact analysis and has the technology to do large scale investigations of subsea environment.

    The following services are offered:

    - Environmental monitoring and recipient management, i.e. monitoring of environmental conditions in one affected area.

    - Biotope mapping, i.e. to provide a quantitative picture of streams and their shores.

    - Environmental impact reports, i.e. limnological surveys, environmental impact surveys and risk assessments when planning, performing and evaluating road and railway construction, power plant construction, cooling and hot water discharge systems as well as the impact of environmentally harmful discharges into water and other similar activities.

    - Sampling, i.e. collection of samples. The company has access to advanced sampling equipment such as four-wheel drive vehicles, sampling vessels as well as snowmobiles and ice drills to perform sampling on the ice.

    The company has customers among public bodies as well as within private companies. They serve county councils, municipalities, consulting firms, the mining industry, hydroelectric power companies and the building and construction sector.

    The company is now looking for companies with laboratories to which they can outsource analysis of samples when they are in high peak periods. The Swedish company is looking to cooperate with similar companies, i.e. companies performing environmental consulting services within limnology and/or marine biology. The partner company should have the quality certifications needed to perform analysis and collect samples.

    Although it is not required in all projects, it is beneficial if the partner is accredited according to ISO 17 025 for analysis of biological samples, for example freshwater infauna.

    The company is also willing to help partner companies in their peak periods, i.e. they are interested in a reciprocal exchange.

    The company is looking for partners in northern Europe, for example in Germany, interested in entering a subcontracting or service agreement.
