06/2020 : Searching for explosives

Another interesting work, searching for explosives and other objects on the seabed off the Elbe River in Germany. For our client Martens Van Oord and Dredge Pump Solutions, our CAT390 Triple Boom 26meter travelled to Germany.

During the soil investigation, a multi-tool was attached to our LRE Excavator which makes it possible to approach and identify UXO objects under water. This multitool has been developed by our customer and the main-contractor, with the big advantage that no divers have to be involved.

A special job in which working accurately, caution and safety are the most important aspects! That’s why our excavator has been adjusted with a special UXO (safety) cabin and GPS to ‘see’ underwater. And of course, like almost every project, we also sent along a small workshop, so that we can run continuously.
