Marine UXO Risk Guide
Written by Simon Cooke   
Tuesday, 14 September 2010 14:44
6 Alpha have now been engaged to manage unexploded ordnance (UXO) risks on half of the UK’s round three renewable projects. We have also been engaged internationally on other marine projects including cable and pipeline laying as well as support to the upstream oil and gas industry.

 

You may have visited our stand at the RenewablesUK conference in Liverpool in June 2010 and perhaps picked up a copy of our marine unexploded ordnance (UXO) threat map, which 6 Alpha have especially generated for the renewables industry. Since then we have also further refined and developed our bespoke UXO Risk Management Framework. These guides are downloadable from our site at http://www.6alpha.com/6-alpha-guides

 

Marine UXO Risk Guide

Because the UXO threat is not always fully understood nor often considered early in developments, the marine UXO threat map has generated a great deal of interest.  We have since been requested to draw together all of our marine UXO experience in a new client focused UXO Marine Risk Guide. We have now produced that guide, which not only incorporates the marine UXO Threat Map and bespoke Risk Management flowchart, but also incorporates for the first time, an explanatory step by step set of guidance notes, which integrates and further explains the holistic process in a user friendly format.

 

We have received some very positive feedback on what we have achieved for clients in the industry who, by employing the principles that we have described in our new Marine UXO Risk Guide, have saved up to 85% of their forecast UXO risk mitigation costs (benchmarked with employing more conventional UXO risk mitigation methods). This guide therefore not only represents a step change in dealing with marine UXO risks, it enables proactive UXO cost control and therefore generates the opportunity for significant savings.

 

RenewablesUK Exhibition - ExCeL London - 12th – 14th June

We are exhibiting once again at the next RenewablesUK conference at ExCeL London which takes place on the 12th – 14th June 2012, where we will be discussing our Marine UXO Risk Guide at our stand. Our Directors, Simon Cooke and Lee Gooderham will be delighted to welcome you at the stand.

They will be running a rolling, on-stand presentation concerning UXO Risk Management techniques and will also be available throughout exhibition to discuss any UXO queries you may have. In the meantime please feel free to call us directly if you have any concerns about UXO on your project.
