Geomines’ teams have been selected to perform pyrotechnic clearance operations, in order to secure the future pool & swimming complex for the 2024 Paris Olympics.

The “La Plaine Saulnier” site, which will be located in Saint-Denis (93), right next to the Stade de France, will host swimming, diving and synchronised swimming competitions.

This unique kind of pool complex will have a capacity of 15,000 seats. It will not only be used to host the Parisian edition of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, since the infrastructure will be part of the legacy of the Games and, as such, returned to the city’s inhabitants once the Games are over.

In this context, the work of Geomines’ experts is crucial in order to ensure that the construction works can be launched safely and meet the Games’ schedule.

This work will take place during the second half of 2019 and will cover 12 hectares of land. The mine-clearance teams will carry out three series of services, namely: the drafting of a historical study of the site, then the carrying out of a pyrotechnic audit based on these conclusions, before securing the associated geotechnical soundings.

Geomines’ teams are proud to secure a project that will contribute to France’s reputation by welcoming athletes and an audience from all over the world, and by ensuring the legacy of the Games.
