Explosive ordnance detection and disposal for dyke construction
- 8000 boring soundings
- Three drilling teams with two 9-ton drill rigs
- A 16t excavator with bell motors
- 58 suspicious objects detected
- Recovery of 12 bombs with chemical detonators that decompose over a long period of time
- Client: Brandenburg State Explosive Ordnance Disposal Service
In 2016, 8000 boring soundings of up to 6 metres in depth were drilled for the reinforcement of the Elbe dykes on the site of a bombed area in Breese. Three drilling teams manned two 9t chain drills and a 16t excavator with a drilling motor. The sounding led to the detection of 58 suspicious objects.
12 bombs with chemical detonators designed to decompose over a long period were subsequently detected during recovery with shoring and drainage and then detonated by the state services.
