Marine UXO – Underwater Survey
CDMS offers a comprehensive marine UXO clearance solution for our potential clients. Civil Engineering projects are being carried out in a vast range of locations, and serious consideration must be exercised in the likely event of the presence of unexploded ordnance from operational war time bombardment to allied disposal or accidental loss. As a result, items that could prove life threatening, to the unsuspecting surface personnel are a real potential threat.
Recent finds of WWII ordnance are a stark reminder of a dangerous legacy and is a very real and great threat to both assets and life.
CDMS, in association with Brimstone UXO is able to provide a complete UXO service from a project start to completion.
