Blasting

We contribute to greater safety and security in technical memorandums and blast management plans. Our expertise in designing plans is based on in-depth experience and knowledge.

Blasting with the utmost responsibility for both safety and economic aspects demands far-reaching expertise. We have longstanding experience and the genuine rock engineering capabilities necessary to determine the size and placement of charges based on the rock material’s resistance to blasting and vibration-transmitting properties. This means we can help you to find the right blasting method with consideration to critical environmental factors – which is decisive for a precise and durable result.

In preparation for complex blasting close to buildings, we perform advanced charge calculations and prepare or examine plans for drilling and charging.  With the help of vibrometers and full measurement, we analyze blasting rounds and calculate firing orders, frequency content, acceleration and amplitude to achieve the best possible blasting results.

There are many problems that can arise in connection with rock blasting. We can provide you with valuable advice for optimizing excavation of weak rock and calculating rock fragmentation in production blasting, and can prepare program documents for demolition of slopes, tunnels and caverns.

We can also help you to evaluate or calculate tenders and design blasting rounds.
