Measurement of electromagnetic radiation

Neighbours to sites with antennas for mobile telecommunication are often concerned about the level of electromagnetic radiation. These concerns sometimes lead to difficult and strained relations. Ramboll is in this sense typically ordered to verify the level of EMR and to elaborate the measurements into an easy readable and understandable report, which can be handed over to neighbours.

Electromagnetic (E-field) and magnetic (H-field) measurements

Since 2004 Ramboll has offered independent consultancy for EMR measurement, which is an increasing request from our customers. 

Ramboll can perform electromagnetic measurements with highly specialised equipment, which are certified, every second year. A very broad range of E-field frequencies are covered - radio, television, mobile, Wi-Fi, local networks and many others services. Ramboll also have equipment to perform measurement of H-field (magnetic) frequencies, which often is measured in industrial production connected to welding of plastic etc.

Reports are elaborated with focus on clients need to learn about the issue without having any specialised knowledge about the subject.  It is a difficult task to measure and report about electromagnetic radiation and Rambolls employees are specially trained to perform such tasks.

Worried neighbours

Ramboll is also in contact with worried neighbours to installations, where electromagnetic radiation is subject to discussion. All questions can be asked by the neighbours and an answer connected to actual measurements compared with recommended electromagnetic limits is often a very understandable way to handle the unrest due to the nearby installations.  With the EMR report in hand, Ramboll can help neighbours to a site with technical information, which allows the neighbours and mobile operators to discuss and exchange views on a more advanced level.  

Meetings are often held in the homes of the concerned peoples or areas close to homes or working space. People in general are concerned about non-visible hazards and naturally ask questions, which only can be answered by experienced experts with knowledge concerning especially mobile radiation technology.


Roof with antennas need special attention to avoid situations, where ordinary visitors are exposed to radiation from panel antennas without knowledge of the situation. Ramboll can guide the owner of the building to avoid these situations. Ramboll have the knowledge and equipment to supervise and verify that critical limits are not exceeded.
