An array of Engineering designed steel decided to promote a new water-blasting technique and unique rocks, which were abandoned in recent years. The process, which
Accompanied by branch mkan creatures (Chief Engineering Officer), a desire to return to the Corps operational ability of a breakthrough hinges using explosives, and not practiced in the range established in the camp נח”ל level.

The new technique is designed to serve as an alternative to the familiar way to clear obstacles and a breakthrough.
Delegates-a process that is performed using heavy equipment (צמ”ה). Clearing obstacles and leveling axes in this way longer and more expensive method.
Therefore, the resource involved both savings and significant savings in time.

The rocks are still carried out by the officials to evacuate and obstacles breaching axes in p-p 605 battalion’s company in cooperation with a team of elite engineering unit, using צה”ליים weapons. “We should prepare the gun in short deadlines,” said the Engineering Officer of the 91st Division, Lieutenant Colonel
Meir Gabay. “One of the challenges in the field was very rocky ground dolomite, mechanical engineering tools couldn’t overcome,” explained.

For short time operation, use of quarrying techniques exercise in using explosives. Once the technique was more common in the Corps, but over time it was abandoned and lost. We decided to utilize the administrative workload of the establishment of ranges in order to restore the operational capacity, a bit worn out but still relevant and important, “said the Engineering Officer of lacquered steel. At the same time, the new technique is designed to be used in the rule.

The process of flattening the ground פל”ס נח”ל camp and both complex is expected to be completed in the coming weeks. “The goal is that at the end of the Torah hailit operational process,” said Lieutenant Colonel Gabbay. “We are working on it with force, with civilian companies and engineers working in the field,” he added.

Otzbtit engineering unit decided not to use civilian companies due to these tasks, which lead to financial savings. “We realized that this is the right way to get to the product of the professional provision of explosion rocks, which exists today,” concluded ogdati Engineering Officer.
