GEOxyz has a broad range of experience in relation to the planning and execution of surveys for the purpose of identifying Unexploded Ordnance (UXO).
UXO are explosive devices such as bombs, bullets, mines and artillery shells.
These items are often hazardous and at risk of detonation even though they may have been dormant for decades.
Typical projects which may require Marine UXO surveys include the construction of windfarms, subsea cables, pipe laying projects, oil, gas and mineral exploration and capital dredging projects.
• Prior to construction / cable laying work
• Unexploded Ordnance Survey: search for metallic / non-metallic objects, on and below the seafloor
(5m below seafloor)
• MB, SSS, Gradiometer, SBP
• Evaluation by UXO certified company
• ALARP certificates
