NAMMO has won a three year Enabling Agreement by the UK Ministry of Defence for the demilitarization of ammunition.
Under the agreement, the MoD will raise tasks for the demilitarization of natures of ammunition considered beyond normal service life.
The MoD will however reserve the right to compete larger programs for disposal either direct or through NAMSA. Routine small scale disposals will remain with the MoD's Shoeburyness facility operated by QinetiQ.
NAMMO Demil is the leading European contractor specializing in safe and environmentally controlled demilitarization of ammunition with dedicated factories in Germany, Norway and Sweden. All the NAMMO facilities meet the strict National and European requirements for the discharge of effluent through the air, water and ground.
NAMMO have chosen EPC UK as the Teaming Partners for this program expanding on their successful relationship where the facility at Bramble Island has been utilized for storage and onward shipping prior to final demilitarization.
Reijo Bragberg, Executive Vice President of NAMMO Demil Division, said "NAMMO are delighted to have been awarded this agreement, this shows that the execution of previous agreement has been successful in providing efficient demil services meeting all customer requirements and this agreement will continue to contribute in delivering value for money for our customer, the UK MoD"
NAMMO previously won competitive tenders for the demilitarization of various products and were also contracted for the previous 5 year agreement with the UK MoD. "This is yet further proof that our strategy in offering environmentally responsible multiple demilitarization technologies is attractive and competitive on the market. This also positions NAMMO well to meet the current need for demilitarization worldwide," says Mr Bragberg.
