They are a prerequisite for any intrusive operation to be performed on a terrain whose historical analysis and explosive contamination diagnostic have identified targets that are liable to be unexploded explosive ordnances (UXO) or explosive remnants of war (ERW).
DEMINETEC implements a series of explosive operations (described in the explosive safety study) that will be lead by the explosives clearance operator, from relocation of the potential target to it being uncovered through a mechanical and/or manual approach, depending on its depth.
As the main goal is to ensure the safety of property and people, the operations will be carried out with the utmost attention by mine disposal technicians who are trained and certified, supervised by an experienced site manager.
DEMINETEC is capable of providing the guarantees necessary as to the quality and security of these operations, perfectly compliant with regulatory requirements and project owner constraints.
It can be broken down into 2 sub-phases:
These 2 phases are carried out by DEMINETEC personnel trained and qualified according to the measures from the French ministerial order dated 23 January 2006.
Depending on the type of munitions, the environment, and the conclusions of the safety study, DEMINETEC will be able to carry out all neutralization and destruction operations on site or destruction in a furnace of one or more explosives.
We will be able to ensure destruction in restricted circumstances (notably in an urban environment) by creating or adding compensatory measures to attenuate the effects of detonating several hundreds of kilograms of explosives.
All operations carried out by DEMINETEC in diagnostics and explosives clearance are subject to internal quality control (and external control, if necessary) throughout the life of the project, by specially trained and designated personnel.
The following will notably be detailed for these major activity phases:
Health and safety
Health and safety are of the utmost importance in all mine disposal operations performed by DEMINETEC
In particular, the following points are handled for each project:
DEMINETEC offers quality assurance audits of explosive diagnostic and clearance operations in order to guarantee the project owner that operations are compliant with the regulation in force and the proposals detailed in our technical memory.
This certificate specifies the operations performed on the site. It shall notably detail:
