Formed in 2016, the joint venture (JV) has demonstrated year-on-year commercial growth. In that time, it has built a formidable track record in UXO survey, identification and disposal, complemented by three years of SHEQ incident-free operations.
BODAC CEO, Jeroen de Ouden commented: “Following three years of successful joint operations, the time is now right for N-Sea and Den Ouden Group’s BODAC to take our JV to the next level. Significant investment in the development of our market-leading UXO solutions and tooling, together with the creation of a distinct brand identity, demonstrates our intention to become the leading authority in UXO risk mitigation.”
N-Sea CEO, Arno van Poppel added: “Clients increasingly demand UXO risk mitigation to be delivered in the shortest time frame, against the lowest possible costs. This requires deep UXO expertise, local content and knowledge, innovative solutions, assets and operational excellence. The investment in our JV ensures that we are fully equipped to fulfil market requirements.”
The JV will continue to service the European UXO market, with four bases across the UK, Germany and The Netherlands. The JV team, with a core of strong market and solution experts, will benefit from the continuous support of both N-Sea and BODAC, including specialists from within each company. The venture’s new identity, along with announcements regarding several influential appointments and in-house technical advancements, will be revealed in the coming months.
