Westervoortsedijk Arnhem

Client: Municipality of Arnhem
Period: 2011-2013

In May 2011, the site of the former gas factory in Arnhem was reorganised. The project included the demolition of buildings and the repositioning of cables and pipelines. Starting in mid-April, contaminated soil in the pipeline trenches was remediated and cleared of UXO. A partition cloth was put into the ground to separate the cleared soil from the soil that has not been decontaminated.

Several UXO were found by Bodac, including a 5.5 inch grenade, a 3 inch rocket engine and some cartridge cases of small calibre ammunition.
