What Golden West Humanitarian Foundation Does
Field Operations

Mobile and Efficient Operations

The Golden West Humanitarian Foundation team have collectively worked in the majority of recent conflict zones and the majority of Explosive Remnant of War contaminated countries worldwide. This experience places them in a unique position to be able to provide efficient, cost effective and on-time field operations. Our proven past record demonstrates operations handled from planning to execution with professionalism and efficiency.

Thanks to our active Research and Product Development efforts we can deploy anywhere and operate immediately thanks to our custom developed products that can be transported safely and easily across the globe. Therefore in situations that require specialist knowledge and action, the Golden West team excels in delivering a mobile, efficient and effective ERW disposal operation.

Needs Assessments

Before any operation can begin, experts must assess the situation to determine what resources are needed to achieve the objectives. This involves a site survey, which considers the location, proximity to human populations, ease of access and potential obstacles. Also included in the survey may be a light detection sample of the ground to understand what level of contamination there is and what type of munitions are to be dealt with. This assessment, once delivered, will go on to form the basis of an operation plan, with clear resource allocation.

Expert Clearance

Golden West has experience of clearing heavily contaminated areas. With an accurate and clear assessment in place, we will allocate technical resources, procure necessary specialist equipment and arrange logistics to get the job done. Golden West has a strong reputation for performing clearance on time and within budget. Our assessments are informed by decades of experience and as a result, we know how to tackle any clearance operation efficiently. Golden West Program Managers will also ensure all clearance and documentation meets the highest international standards.

Stockpile Destruction

Nations that have recently moved from conflict to peacetime will often need to decommission munitions stockpiles that are no longer required, or that have reached the end of their reliable operational life. The decommissioning of munitions stockpiles requires experience to ensure that destruction is performed without risk to life, the surrounding facilities, or the environment. In addition to considerations of safety, there are numerous benefits to having a fundamental understanding of munition specific reactions. Our staff are experienced in clearing large stockpiles of various munitions, and always manage to do so without disrupting the surrounding areas.

Specialist EOD

Many clearance projects encounter Explosive Remnants of War (ERW) that require particular training and experience to approach and clear. Golden West staff have expertise in a number of specialist EOD applications, including Cluster Munitions Stockpile Destruction, Underwater Munitions Salvage, Battle Area Clearance and World War II US and Japanese munition clearance. Golden West has studied or made inert numerous rarely found munitions, from historical artefacts to munitions produced in different countries (each with their own characteristics). This puts our staff in a unique position to assist projects that will involve specialist munitions or locations.
