UXO disposal will be a key element of Dynasafe’s stand at the DSEI exhibition at London’s ExCEl Centre from the 12th -15th of September 2017. DSEI (Defence and Security Equipment International) is the world leading event that brings together the global defence and security sectors.
On Dynasafe’s stand will be Dynasafe BACTEC’s DynaSEALR X chamber. The DynaSEALR X chamber is normally the heart of Dynasafe BACTEC’s BombTruck. BombTruck is the name given to Dynasafe BACTEC’s road legal UXO disposal service. BombTruck is licenced to carry ordnance of up to 7.5kg NEQ (net explosive quantity) on the public highway in the UK. BombTruck has been approved by a range of UK authorities due to it containing the DynaSEALR X chamber. This chamber is designed and manufactured by Dynasafe and is used to store the ordnance during transit ahead of disposal and the chamber contains 100% of a detonation of upto 7.5kg NEQ including all gases created by the detonation in the unlikely event the ordnance detonates during transit.
If during your construction project an item of ordnance is located and following assessment is deemed ‘safe to move’ by a suitably qualified EOD engineer then the ordnance can be transferred to a suitable UXO disposal facility via the BombTruck.
The key advantages of the BombTruck system is the significant time and cost savings the project benefits from compared to traditional routes. On most projects all works on the site may be stopped until the item is removed. Often if the item contains only small amounts of explosives and is deemed stable the emergency services including the Bomb Disposal teams may not prioritise the ordnance find and in extreme case it may be the following days before the item is removed or destroyed on site. A further consideration is that it is considerably safer to remove ordnance from site for disposal at a permanent disposal facility rather than dispose of the item onsite.
