Geomines’ knowhow highlighted in the specialised public works press
Travaux, a magazine known for its coverage of public works, in France and abroad, has become, since its foundation in 1917, a real showcase for all professions and services contributing to such works.
The 949th edition of the magazine, published in March 2019, deals more specifically with the issues related to railways and underground stations. Such sites must, indeed, comply with very specific implementation constraints and are, as such, particularly concerned by mine clearance activities.
Diagnoses and mine clearance activities must, indeed, be integrated well in advance in the construction process. They contribute directly to the protection of property and people, while ensuring business and service continuity.
This 949th edition devotes a long report to Geomines, highlighting the high level of technical expertise developed by Geomines’ teams, following two decades of activities for the benefit of major operators in the field of public works, among other customers.
In this edition, Christian JOFFRE, Geomines’ Manager for France and former French Navy EOD diver, presents the main stages of demining projects, before elaborating on the specificities of the demining profession; a good opportunity to review some of Geomines’ most recent successes, such as securing the underwater construction site of the future Pont de Sèvres station, as part of so-called Grand Paris Express.
