International expansion for EODEX Group with new US base
22 February 2022
Today at Subsea Expo in Aberdeen, EODEX Group, has announced a major expansion into the US market, with the establishment of EODEX US LLC.
The new US subsidiary will be based in Portsmouth, Rhode Island.
Following on from rapid growth of the UK operation and exponential rise in demand for their industry leading deflagration capability, EODEX US LLC will now bring EODEX’s proven world leading environmental UXO disposal solution to the US offshore market.
The new base in Rhode Island will be led by Andrew Elvin OBE. Andrew is a retired Royal Navy Captain with over 30 years’ experience working alongside and embedded with the US Department of the Navy commands and organizations. He is ideally situated to collaborate with a number of high-profile US companies who lead the rapidly growing US offshore renewables industry.
EODEX US will offer EODEX’s trademark gentle Low Order Deflagration UXO disposal solutions delivered by US operators; this has already generated considerable interest with federal government bodies responsible for minimising impact on the marine environment through UXO disposal during offshore enabling operations.
Andrew Woollven, Managing Director of EODEX Group said: "The rise of EODEX in the UK to become the leading provider of proven Low Order Deflagration capability has given us the confidence to expand our operation to the US.
"We have brought together an amazing team in Rhode Island who are well placed to deliver our exceptional capability to a US market hungry for innovative environmental solutions delivered by our US operational personnel.”
Andrew Elvin, President of EODEX US added: "EODEX US is strategically positioned here in New England to bring its full spectrum of unexploded ordnance risk mitigation capabilities to the offshore renewables industry.
"With its proven environmentally conscious techniques, EODEX can deliver safe and effective operations not only offshore, but anywhere minimal impact to the environment is desired. EODEX brings commercial unexploded ordnance disposal into the 21st century’.
