EODEX is a leading technical authority on providing technical solutions for marine UXO/MEC clearance & mitigation.
Our operators can operate in the most challenging environmental conditions including nil-visibility and strong tidal streams from the high water mark out to deep water.
We can identify potential UXO/MEC targets (pUXO) that are located as proud, partially buried or buried targets.
These potential targets form an integrated target list where our teams can classify using ROV and/or diver through non-intrusive dredging processes.
Ordnance can be safely destroyed in situ or removed using our remote ordnance lifting system for destruction in a safe designated area.
All our disposal activities pay full regard to the environmental requirements and fully observe the mitigation measures required to protect marine life. Delivering our capability through Alford Technologies unique deflagration technique, the disruption to the marine environment is minimized for all our disposal operations.
Any remaining explosive residue and metal components are recovered using our specialist collection system for safe disposal ashore, thereby minimising disturbance to the seabed and reducing any negative impact on the marine environment.
The flexibility, resilience and in-house capabilities built into our organisation enables our operators to respond within 24 hours to any reactive emergency tasking.
Subject to a customer’s marine licence, we can ensure that any immediate UXO/MEC problem can be dealt with quickly, effectively and safely
