Natural gas exploration has caused earthquakes in the north of the Netherlands. As an independent knowledge centre for earthquake expertise, Sweco is studying the risks and the impact on the local population, the environment, business, infrastructure and the (semi) public sector. The Netherlands has an Earthquake task force consisting of construction and geo engineering specialists. Our experts identify risks and advise on the measures to be taken in order to make your assets more earthquake resistant.
