The ToolBox Approach
Extensive research and development in the field of counter landmine operations and demining over a period of three decades has created a capacity and a capability to effectively and cost-efficiently execute mine action operations.
MECHEM has successfully completed numerous contracts with the United Nations and other clients in various regions of the world, and is registered with the United Nations as a commercial demining company. MECHEM is fully conversant with the international governing regulations and directives, in particular the International Mine Action Standards (IMAS) and ensures compliance thereof.
A toolbox cannot repair a broken vehicle – it requires a mechanic to select and use the right tool for the right job!
Due to the unique nature of every landmine related situation, a standard or rigid approach is not always the most suitable solution. MECHEM understands that a standard ‘one size fits all’ solution will not be found, as every landmine related problem is unique to each circumstance demanding a different and specific solution. MECHEM has devised a ‘toolbox’ approach to effectively deal with each scenario. This approach entails a thorough analysis of the problem (situation) and the creative use of the right tool for the right job. MECHEM empowers its deminer/explosive ordnance disposal operator to the extent that they become the primary component in solving a landmine/UXO (Unexploded Ordnance) issue.
