One of PT DAHANA’s services is the disposal or destruction of degraded explosives. Disposal of explosives has good economic value for consumers, because it reduces the consumers’ risk in maintaining explosives that are no longer in use and optimizes space in the warehouse for storage good explosives.

This was conveyed by PT DAHANA’s Director of Operations, Yusep Nugraha in Jakarta (28/07). Mr Nugraha said that recently DAHANA carried out the destruction of customers’ damaged or degraded explosives. The peak of the series of disposal which was attended by the National Police Headquarters, the East Java Regional Police, representatives of Customs and Excise, and representatives of the owners of the explosives took place at the Indonesian Air Force’s Air Weapon Range, Pandan Wangi, Lumajang, East Java, on July 10, 2023.

Mr Nugraha said that as an Indonesian explosives qibla company, DAHANA is committed to maintaining security for the community and the environment from the hazards of damaged or degraded explosives.

“The purpose of explosive disposal is to help consumers get rid of damaged explosives or explosives that can no longer be used, so as to avoid risks from both a safety, security and economic standpoint,” said Mr Nugraha.

The disposed explosives this time originated from PT DAHANA, Star Energy Geothermal Salak Ltd, and Pertamina Hulu Energi Tanjung East Java which had passed their expiration date or were unfit for use. The method of disposal this time is detonation and burning, especially for seismic Dayagel explosives.

Mr Nugraha added that DAHANA is an explosives company with the largest and most comprehensive facilities in Southeast Asia. DAHANA has a Total Explosive Solutions service, which ranges from provision and mobilization of explosives, explosive warehousing, consultation and explosives disposal.

This disposal process was carefully executed by DAHANA’s team of experts. The Company followed established procedures to ensure safety and security during the process. The disposal of degraded explosives is an effort to comply with security and safety standards as stipulated in Indonesian National Police Regulation No. 17 of 2017 on Licensing, Security, Supervision and Control of Commercial Explosives.

“The success of the explosives disposal process is expected to increase consumer confidence in choosing DAHANA as a partner in handling integrated explosives, both in the mining, quarrying and construction sectors, as well as in oil and gas exploration,” concluded Mr Nugraha.
