MECHEM and Goren-Kidon has a resource of professionally trained and experienced manual deminers/EOD operators.
This capacity can be supplemented from a reserve of deminers who have served in the IDF (Israel Defense Force) as combat engineers and deminers that served with the company as contractors through the years.
Although, each individual deminer may only clear 10-50 square meters a day, manual demining consider to be the best demining method, performing the highest quality possible as humans are the most versatile of “assets” and are able to demine in virtually all ground conditions.
As MECHEM and Goren-Kidon recognizes the importance of building local capacity in the mine affected countries, it gives preference to the recruiting and training of locals for the execution of contracts.
Our senior personal are IMAS 3 and IMAS 4 qualified.
MECHEM has carried out hundreds of training for IMAS levels 1-3 – you may find more Information in the Training page
