United Kingdom

It’s estimated that 10% of bombs dropped by the Germans during WWII failed, consequently unexploded ordnance (UXO) is found somewhere in Britain every single month.

A recent find by SafeLane Global in London’s Docklands temporarily closed London City airport, and serves as a stark reminder of the continuing need for comprehensive support to manage explosive remnants of war (ERW).

SafeLane Global’s experts lead the way, surveying, searching for, finding and managing the threat of unexploded ordnance – on land and in water – for its clients across the British Isles.

Working alongside Her Majesty’s Government, SafeLane Global has also been at the forefront of operations to clear the Falkland Islands of landmines following the war of 1982.

By 2020 the Falkland Islands will be landmine free, and new life will have been breathing into unsafe environments, positively transforming communities and the lives of those living and working within them.
