Safe Storage of Recovered Marine Ordnance
Prior to dredging taking place suitable storage areas are prepared for the securing and segregation of different natures of ordnance and scrap on board the dredgers. Similar facilities will be prepared on the land if required. BACTEC's Standing Operating Procedures determine the quantity of UXO (based on its NEQ) explosives that can be safely held on-board before it is necessary to offload for final disposal.
UXO Dredging Around the Clock
Where 24 hour dredging operations are to be undertaken BACTEC will provide sufficient Marine Surveyors and EOD Engineers to allow shift work.
To reduce downtime in the event of an ordnance find BACTEC will provide UXO Engineers on vessels to ensure immediate response to the discovery of suspicious objects or items of ordnance.
BACTEC also provide an Emergency Response Capability to react to the discovery of suspicious objects or items of ordnance in marine aggregate sites.
