Searching the seabed for explosive projectiles and naval mines

Searching the seabed for explosive projectiles and naval mines

An Unexploded Ordinance (UXO) survey had to be performed before a sand extraction area situated about 20 kilometers North of Ameland could be taken in to service.

Periplus delivered 4 hydrographic surveyors to Geoplus who used their Geofocus survey vessel for the job.

The vessel towed two magnetometers that passively measure the earth’s magnetic field. Disturbances in that field are potentially unexploded bombs (UXO’s).
