De-mining refers to the process of removing landmines and other explosive remnants of war from a specific area. Landmines are typically buried in the ground and can remain active for decades after a conflict has ended, posing a serious threat to civilians.

De-mining activities involve carefully locating and removing all explosive hazards, as well as educating local populations about the risks associated with unexploded ordnance. These operations can be complex and dangerous, requiring specialized equipment and personnel with extensive training in explosive ordnance disposal.

Peter Smith QGM, Halo Trust programme manager Ukraine, said: “We are delighted to be working with Allu and we look forward to integrating the Allu DS 3-12 into our de-mining operations in Ukraine.

Allu managing director Peter Gronholm added: “We have worked with other organisations over the years to supply a similar application.”
