What we do

We drill and blast trenches for outfall pipes and areas for harbor deepening. We use controlled blasting techniques to minimize vibrations. This is particularly important if we are blasting near structures or residencies.

Our equipment is designed to fit into standard shipping containers, allowing us to mobilize to anywhere in the world.

No Injuries No Accidents

Our people are our most valuable assets, making safety a core value. Our goal is No Injuries No Accidents. This is embedded in our company’s culture and supported through Values and Rules. All employees, including our subcontractors, are expected to take these values and rules to heart.

NINA empowers everyone to challenge unsafe situations. We involve everyone in our approach to safety. It is no longer expected that safety is the exclusive responsibility of management.
