Soil decontamination

Douaumont and Vaux forts, Meuse - Moselle, France

Nearly a century after the end of hostilities in World War I, the pyrotechnic soil cleanup in eastern France is still ongoing and crucial to restoring a natural area.

After working on the extension of the Verdun Memorial, VINCI Construction Terrassement’s specialised subsidiary Navarra TS is carrying out a major pyrotechnical cleanup project in a number of areas in the Douaumont and Vaux forts and the Douaumont ossuary.

The operations, which require particular care, have made it possible to find and secure large amounts of ordnance and are set for completion at the end of 2017.
