Dangerous heritage

Last century, Belgium had to endure the scourge of a World War twice. Hundreds of thousands of tons of ammunition – grenades, aerial bombs, mines – were fired, cast, dumped or left behind. Statistics show that 10% never exploded, an mostly disappeared unnoticed in the soil.

Almost on a daily basis, this dangerous heritage comes to the surface. Apart from being a real danger for man, material and environment, such a find almost always means a temporary interruption of activities, and an evacuation that can often last quite a while.

The pro-active deployment of a UXO detection company like Bom-Be results in a significant reduction of safety risks, saving time and costs as well. Our approach is based on an efficient use of knowledge and means. A thorough preliminary archive study can accurately point out which location is problematic and which is not.
