During soil investigation in the North Sea there have been found seven explosives. In the coming weeks they will be defused. So said the Orsted company who is building a windmill-park in the area.

During the investigation 850 suspicious objects were found on the seabed.


Not all of them were explosives. Seven of them were found to be unexploded bombs. In the North Sea between the UK and the Netherlands many bombs from World War II are still in the water.

Orsted starts in December with the construction of the windmill-park.
