Client Representative

Threat Resolution Limited provides experienced Client Representatives for 3rd party offshore UXO projects.  The aim of a Client Representative is to oversee the UXO Risk Mitigation work being carried out on behalf of a client by contractors or their sub-contractors. It is a significant role that if carried out correctly can be instrumental in the efficient running and successful delivery of a project in a subsea environment.
