Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska, USA
Eielson AFB is home to the 354th Fighter Wing, which supports mission operations, maintenance and medical functions for the Pacific. The base required services to clear munitions and explosives of concern (MEC) on its active Oklahoma, Blair Lakes and Yukon bombing and gunnery ranges.
Conti mobilized quickly and assembled personnel, equipment and supplies in just eight working days, all transported to the remote location by helicopter. Crews were prepared with supplies for adverse conditions and also received specialized site training.
Conti oversaw the assessment of each MEC, which was performed by experienced unexploded ordnance technicians who then removed, gathered, segregated and transported the “dead” MECs. The project team also safely documented and demolished live MECs.
The crew camped onsite between the 12-14-hour work days, keeping a fire going throughout the night to deter wild animals. Conti completed the project on schedule and budget, without any safety incidents.
Conti removed over 3,300 dangerous explosives with zero lost time incidents and without affecting military training schedules.
