GAP Geo: Invents new technology, clinches offshore Windfarm Project in the Netherlands

A Queensland company has helped win a major contract with one of the world’s top dredging companies to find unexploded bombs in the Netherlands.

Gap Explosive Ordnance Detection (EOD) invented the technology for Dutch dredging giant Boskalis to find the unexploded munitions from WWII in the Borssele Wind Farm Zone in the North Sea.

The project is part of a multi-million dollar deal between the geo-intelligence company Fugro and Boskalis for the Dutch transmissions systems operator TenneT.

It includes survey work involving underwater cables for the planned grid connection between offshore platforms and a substation on the Dutch coastline.


“The team will be delivering the technology in October,” said Dr Stephen Billings, director of Gap EOD.

“We’re no stranger to marine projects, having previously undertaken similar jobs over the past several years, including a major project with Boskalis Westminster in Portsmouth Harbour in the UK.”
