Phase 5B


If the UXO risk cannot be mitigated with repositioning of the planned infrastructure location, UXOcontrol offers WROV and diver-based relocation and disposal. UXO final mitigation is a highly specialised and potentially hazardous task for which UXOcontrol deploys our inhouse Explosive Engineering services.

Regulations on Explosive Ordnance Neutralisation vary by country, so local knowledge and interfacing with authorities is essential to ensure safe and compliant neutralisation.

Explosive Ordnance Neutralization UXOcontrol operates a Mine neutralization system to specific safety requirements. It’s a State of the Art, robust and safe underwater neutralisation system.

The system retains all the main characteristic of the Market leading Cobra MDS. The bespoke system meets DEF Standards, International Ammunition Technical Guidelines (IATG), International Mine Action Standards (IMAS), Health and Safety Executive (HSE) guidelines.

With this system our Explosive Engineering service can conduct underwater Render Safe Procedures, Recovery or Disposal of Explosive Ordnance (EO) in a safe, cost and time efficient manner.

The UXO UXOcontrol Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Team can undertake Global EOD actions:

  • As a routine part of UXO clearance operations, upon discovery of EO.
  • To dispose of EO discovered outside hazardous areas, (this may be a single item of EO), or larger number inside a specific area).
  • To dispose of EO which has become hazardous by deterioration, damage, or attempted destruction.
  • 24/7-hour availability on e.g., dredging operations in a post war hazardous environment.
