Janus Global Operations (JGO), an integrated stability operations firm and the world’s largest demining company, has been awarded a contract to conduct clearance of unexploded ordnance in Yavoriv, Ukraine.

Assigned this task by the Joint Multinational Training Group-Ukraine, JGO will clear nearly 18 million square meters of “munitions and explosives of concern” and “material potentially presenting an explosive hazard” at the Yavoriv International Peacekeeping and Security Center (IPSC) training range located in western Ukraine.

The more than $8.4 million project will begin in April 2017 and is scheduled to be completed by January 2018. About 150 JGO employees will be engaged in the range clearance tasks.

The U.S. military has participated in training exercises at the IPSC, along with other NATO and Ukrainian military forces, in the past and will continue training there until at least 2020. From June 27 to July 8, 2016, U.S. military forces participated in a joint multinational force exercise, Operation Rapid Trident.  According to the Army’s website, this exercise supported interoperability among Ukraine, the U.S., NATO, and Partnership for Peace member nations, and included 14 countries and approximately 2,000 personnel.

JGO works globally to provide safety and environmental remediation services at military training sites, eliminating threats wherever they are posed by landmines, improvised explosive devices, dropped munitions (bombs, dispensers and submunitions), projected munitions (projectiles, mortars and rockets) as well as other unexploded ordnance.

Janus Global Operations is an integrated stability operations company with thousands of employees serving clients in North America, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and South and East Asia. JGO’s services include munitions response, demining, intelligence support, logistics, life support, risk management, communications, and other services in some of the world’s most challenging environments.
