UXO Specialist Services & On-Site Support

uxo specialistUnexploded Ordnance (UXO) or Unexploded Bombs (UXB) contamination presents developers, their employees and the general public with a potentially lethal situation.

Ordnance contamination can originate from conflicts, such as World War 2, in the form of Unexploded Bombs (UXB), Land Service Ammunition (LSA) and Naval mines and munitions. Ordnance can also originate from training, manufacturing, testing and storage on current or former Ministry of Defence (MoD) land.
