Offshore Blasting – Explosions


Offshore construction requires sometimes underwater blasting for rock-fragmentation or mine-clearance. In that field, MAREE provides services and research.

  • Our propagation modeling predictions are adapted and suited to complex coastal environments :
    • Range dependent very shallow water environment
    • Buried sources
  • Our in-situ measurement tools are adapted and suited to specific blasting operations : 
    • Shock jauge instrumentation
    • High dynamic sensors
    • Calibrated tools to respect environmental regulations
  • Our expertise allows us to implement the best mitigation method : 

MAREE has been involved in R&D governmental project (POSA) to improve underwater counter-mining acoustic impact knowledge.
