Explosive Clearance Group

Explosives testing and detection

The Dutch soil still contains a large number of unexploded bombs, grenades, mines and other munitions from the Second World War. The condition of these explosive remnants of war (OO) deteriorates under the influence of weather conditions and groundwater. This creates risks during construction and development projects: both from a safety point of view and in financial terms. It is therefore important to start your project with an explosives survey, because prevention is better than cure.

Explosives Research

The explosives investigation includes a thorough preliminary investigation, based on facts from various historical sources. Explosive Clearance Group (ECG) distinguishes itself in explosives research by using additional (international) source material in all cases. This assures you of reliable and expert advice. As an option, a Risk Analysis can be drawn up following the Preliminary Investigation. The Risk Analysis describes the results of the Preliminary Investigation in relation to the intended soil interventions, in order to recommend a suitable cost-saving implementation method.

Explosives Detection

Based on extensive specialist knowledge and years of experience in the area of detecting explosives, ECG can provide a clear picture of your specific soil situation. If the preliminary investigation shows that detection of the area is necessary, ECG has the right professionals to carry out each phase of the explosives detection. Subsequently, the area can be remediated by approaching and securing the explosives.
