In the course of the fairway adjustment, excavators are used in places that are being deepened for the first time. As safety is the top priority, it was checked before the excavators were used to see whether there was any danger here, e.g. from ammunition storage.
For this purpose, the ground was probed and suspicious areas were identified. These suspicious points were finally examined by a so-called multitool to make sure that they were not ammunition.
The excavator with the multitool was used for the first time in the port of Hamburg. Take a look for yourself in this episode of PORT IS WHAT WE DO.
