In search of Tallboys @ IJmuiden (NL)

21 maart 2011

During the last week, our UXO divers were working in the harbour of IJmuiden.

Desk studies made clear that during the Second World War several “Tallboys” were used in the harbour of IJmuiden to destroy the German Kriegsmarine shelters.

Detection made clear that massive anamolies were detected, so divers were necessary to identify the UXO’s.

After a week work, during sometimes difficult circumstances (foul weather, large ships in the area) , all UXO were identified. The area is declared safe, no Tallboys were discovered.

Some pictures were added below to give an impression of the work.

Duikwerkzaamheden onder OCE omstandigheden bij Kralingse Plas (10 maart 2011)

16 maart 2011

Afgelopen donderdag zijn duikers van Monshouwer ingezet om een betonnen bak uit het water te hijsen. Deze bak lag in een gebied dat eerder aangegeven was als “munitie-verdacht”. In de afgelopen jaren is hier (op het vaste land) een aantal bommen verwijderd.

De inzet kreeg een extra dimensie door de hijsondersteuning die door Mammoet werd gegeven. Een 500 tons kraan is opgebouwd om uiteindelijk over de aanwezige molen heen de betonnen bak, die door de duikers in een stroop is geplaatst, op het droge te plaatsen.

Een bijzondere dag, die zeer voorspoedig is afgesloten. Bijgesloten een aantal fotomomenten en een krantenartikel van 11 maart in het Algemeen Dagblad.
