Many parameters must be considered in conjunction with blasting operations. Production targets need to be weighed against endeavours to preserve remaining rock and limit the impact on the environment. Nitro Consult can play an active role in this process.
As consultants we help our clients to determine the framework conditions required to ensure that blasting work is carried out in a safe manner and without causing damage to the remaining rock or the environment. We can also provide assistance at the worksite and act as the client’s representative when it comes to blasting-related issues.
Nitro Consult also supports the contractor/blasting company when it comes to technical issues such as vibration optimisation, blast damage reduction, fragmentation and safety measures in relation to flying rock fragments etc.
Examples of types of project:
- Implementation plan for blasting in a sensitive environment
- Permit application for excavation and mining operations
