In Nimes, in the Gard area, Geomines contributes to the securing of Terres de Rouvière. The above-mentioned site consists of 45 hectares, recently acquired from the French army by the city of Nimes. The newly-transferred site will soon serve as a playground and a walking area for its new users.
The land survey and pyrotechnic clearance operations, launched by Geomines on April, 23 2018, came to a successful on March, 08 2019. These operations permitted the discovery of several metallic fragments, and ensure that no explosives materials were present on site. These fragments have been since dealt with by Geomines’ experts.
This area being now secured, landscaping operations can now commence in order to allow for a safe and full use of this zone by 2021.
Geomines, the Risk&Co Group’s dedicated mine clearance Business Unit has signed a partnership agreement with Tellus Environment.
Tellus Environment is an innovative startup company, incubated within the Laboratoire de Mathématiques de l’Université de Bretagne Occidentale. Over the years, the company has developed and structured its activities around three services, namely: 3D mapmaking, anomaly detection using drones and the creation of detection instruments.
This partnership agreement aims at generating synergies between the two companies in the field of R&D. Tellus’ expertise will be put to good use, when it comes to analysing data collected by Geomines. Geomines, for its part, will provide Tellus with its knowledge of the French and international market of mine clearance activities.
Moreover, this agreement will enable Geomines to carry out a series of high-added value surveys (stratigraphy, geo radar, magnetic), in order to further improve the precision of both diagnoses and mine clearance operations.
This agreement comes as a formal acknowledgment of a profitable relationship, initiated over six years ago.
Geomines, the Risk & Co Group’s mine clearing Business Unit, has inaugurated its new offices, located at Six-fours-les-plages (83), on January 17th, 2019.
