N-Sea and Bodac Form UXO All-Rounder

Subsea inspection, maintenance and repair (IMR) provider, N-Sea, and Bodac UXO, an unexploded ordnance (UXO) risk mitigation expert, have announced an agreement to jointly market and execute marine UXO survey, identification and removal projects across Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany and Scandinavia.

N-Sea CEO, Gerard Keser, said: “The cooperation between N-Sea and Bodac will significantly reduce the required interface between different service suppliers and our customers. Together, N-Sea and Bodac have the track record, project management teams, vessels, survey equipment, all relevant certificates and outstanding reporting capabilities to provide offshore windfarm developers and power cable owners a cost efficient solution to clearing their corridors and installation plots.”

With this agreement, the two Dutch companies say they will have the capability to offer developers, contractors and operators of offshore wind farms a complete suite of UXO solutions.

Jochem Langenhuijzen, CEO of Den Ouden Group, owners of Bodac, said: “The cooperation with N-Sea presents a big opportunity for customers to benefit from many years of experience of Bodac in the survey, data processing, identification and clearance of UXOs. Bodac possesses Dutch OCE certificates, and German Paragraph 7 and 20 certificates in its own name, and looks forward to offering seamless offshore UXO services in cooperation with N-Sea.”
