TKMS, Kiel, Germany

Project: TKMS, Kiel, Germany
Customer:     DDW
Time of execution: 2017-2018
Description of the project: Ammunition disposal

When TKMS in Kiel were to make a new jetty by their submarine shipyard, they needed to increase the water depth at the harbour basin at the same time. The whole area in question therefore needed to be thoroughly searched for any existing ammunition or old bombs(UXO) from World War II. This procedure was done with Elisabeth Høj. The excavated material was then sorted through a sieve and examined by an ammunition expert. Afterwards, the material was loaded on to a barge and transported away for further landfill purposes.
