UXO investigation and clearance

We offer worldwide service in UXO identification and removal on land and offshore. We employ licenced divers and Explosives Experts who are kept up to date with the latest technology and have vast experience with the widest possible range of UXO in various states of decay in various soils. For offshore work we have our own ROV which we use for inspection of UXO suspect targets selected through geophysics. After

Consultancy and operational guidance

For sites that are suspect for the presence of UXO we provide qualified and licenced consultants. Their tasks could for instance consist of installing structural UXO countermeasures on board or on site, writing project specific procedures for working in UXO suspect environments and liaise with local military EOD units. We also provide the hardware for site safety like for instance anti shrapnel screens and blast proof UXO storage facilities. If

Geophysics under water and on land

We have our own geophysics crew and equipment for both land and offshore. We have Electormagnetometry or EM for land and waterbeds, enabling us to detect non-ferreous metals and variations in conductivity, magnetometry and Ground Penetrating Radar or GPR. For offshore projects we have our own offshore survey vessel equipped with multibeam sonar and subbottom profiler. For research in areas where towed arrays are not possible due to depth or

Desk Research

Whether it for the purpose of UXO services or archaeology both offshore and on land, desk based historical research provides data which we use to locate or assess presence of UXO or (underwater) heritage. This research will, where applicable, lead to a project specific risk assessment report which will be the base line for our geophysics approach. If an area is for instance identified as a wartime target area for

Maritime archaeology

Most countries have legislation in place to protect underwater heritage against disruption by for instance dredging, construction and mooring of ships. We provide desk research and geophysics to search the sea bed for sites with archaeological value that under threat of disruption. This way we prevent late stage discovery of (potential) heritage sites and thus intervention with the inevitable delays as a result. If geophysics identify sites that may cause

Battlefield archaeology

Battlefield archaeology is divided into two variations: archaeology of a battlefield with the battle itself as period of interest or archaeology in areas that saw battle of later date than the period of interest. For both cases we provide the combined skills of UXO expertise and archaeology. Our archaeologists are trained and certified for working in UXO contaminated areas whereas our UXO experts are skilled in removal of ordnance in
