UXO Seminar - Locating and Clearing Unexploded Ordnance
Organised and hosted by The Hydrographic Society UK this one-day seminar and accompanying table-top Exhibition will focus on Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) Surveys.
Unexploded ordnance (UXO) are defined as explosive munitions which haven't yet been set off. UXO may already have been fired, dropped or launched, but it failed to detonate as intended and therefore still poses a risk, possibly decades after deployment.
In addition, the seminar may also consider explosive remnants of war (ERW) which have subsequently entered the marine environment. The seminar will focus on the marine environment including rivers and lakes, nearshore and offshore.
Participants and attendees will include personnel from a wide range of marine sectors including Offshore Oil & Gas, Marine Renewables, Port and Terminal Civil Engineering and Dredging.
The event is expected to be of interest to the hydrographic community, engineers and marine insurers.
