"Landmines and unexploded ordnance kill or maim thousands of civilians each year and deny access to land, water, schools, hospitals and other essential infrastructure"
Babylon Gold exists to clear landmines and unexploded ordnance so that the environment for peace, regional stability and sustainable economic development can be created in areas which have been ravaged by conflict.
Babylon Gold currently has its main assets in Iraq and delivers superior value solutions to the projects it supports by applying professional project management and integrated programs for the following:
- technical demining
with mine detection dogs
- force protection and security as an integral component of all projects
- life support and logistics as an integral component within Babylon Gold
- mine risk education
- technical consultancy and management
- training to provide Iraqis with an indigenous long term mine action capability
Explosives Ordnance Disposal (EOD)
Babylon Gold has the capability to conduct both Battle Area Clearance (BAC) and Unexploded Ordnance (UXO).
Babylon Gold provides technical and project management consultancy to governments and the commercial sector.
In 2003 Babylon Gates managers realised that a massive program of EOD, BAC and landmine clearance was required in the normalisation of conditions in Iraq. Babylon Gold is the product of that realisation.
The Iraqi people and government, and the international sector are denied access and therefore development opportunities to regenerate land, infrastructure and commercial opportunities with consequent economic damage to water, power, agriculture, construction and internal security.
Initial Response Capability
Babylon Gold has its assets ready in Iraq for deployment to the government and the private sector. Babylon Gold will conduct surveys using its sophisticated imagery and mapping techniques, prepare a program, and execute the mission with every confidence.
Security and Force Protection
Security of operations in the field is paramount. Babylon Gold has an integral security company fully registered as a Private Security company in Iraq. Security professionals, whether Local Nationals or international are trained by ex-members of the British Special Forces.
Operations Security and Information security measures include encrypted voice and data between company offices, and secure and protected file servers in London.
Life Support and Logistics
Babylon Gold has experienced project and field managers used to operating temporary camps with full utilities in Iraq in all weather conditions. Supply lines are kept open in co-operation with other land users and the authorities including the Iraqi and American military and civilian agencies set up for the purpose. Asset tracking is maintained to ensure the safe and timely movements of personnel and equipment.
Babylon Gold operates to the technical International Mine Action Standards (IMAS) and also within the guidelines set out by Iraq's National Mine Action Authority (NMAA).
Babylon Gold operates to the US Government and Iraqi Ministry of Interior standards in the delivery and accountability of its security services.
Aggressive Quality and Risk Management for Continuous Improvement
Babylon Gold achieves progress through a proactive approach towards improvements, creating efficiencies and better value. It achieves this through the pursuit of excellence in its management and training, and investment in communications and information systems.
