Explosives research at Eben-Emael

Together with partner and mission holder Bom-BE, Geosonda carried out a bomb detection campaign or UXO-research for CBR (Cimenteries et Briqueteries RĂ©unies) within the framework of a potential expansion of a quarry for cement production.
Eben-Emael is known for its historical battle at the start of World War II, creating a high explosion risk during interventions in the soil. During this study, locations were researched using a probe drilling machine, which investigated a range of sites to a depth of 8 m. These released locations act as precursor of the larger soil survey that will be carried out later.
