EMerald Geomodelling

EMerald Geomodelling is a spin-off from the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute (NGI). Though we are a young company founded in 2019, our business is built on a decade of research and development at NGI. We are creating a tool that revolutionizes the way we build roads, railways, tunnels, and other types of infrastructure towards a more sustainable use of resources. By using AI to detect patterns and manage uncertainties, we provide critical insights early on in large building projects that help our clients make better decisions. Why do we do this? Worldwide, building infrastructure costs billions of dollars. Too often, actual costs go way over budget. These extra billions spent are a huge burden on society. Our mission is to lessen that burden. By helping our clients build roads, railways, and tunnels with fewer costly interventions, we help free up funds for other worthy social and environmental goals.
