Unexploded ordnance (UXO) continue to pose a real risk to site developers, contractors, and asset owners, even long after periods of inactivity, with the potential to impede the safe and timely completion of projects.
Our comprehensive solution aims to mitigate these risks efficiently, to safeguard schedules and enable the arrival of heavy lift assets and cable lay support vessels on site. Our clients can be confident that the site has been prepared in advance, and the threat of UXO eliminated.
Combining our advanced range of ROVs, industry knowhow, and market-leading sensors, we deliver valuable insights into the marine environment and work with our clients to develop a customised mitigation strategy to address the risks posed by UXO threats. We aim to ensure safe, timely removal of these hazards. We bring schedule efficiencies that ultimately reduce the time to completion and first power.
With extensive experience in both ferrous and non-ferrous target identification, we deploy technology that can significantly reduce the number of potential unexploded ordnance (pUXO). With this insight, and working closely with our geophysicists and assigned UXO consultants, removal from scope of up to 65% of false targets has been realised, significantly reducing the subsequent requirement to dredge and visually inspect.
