GERMAN NAVAL YARDS, together with Rheinmetall Project Solutions and another offshore partner, apply to build an "Ammunition Disposal Platform"

GERMAN NAVAL YARDS KIEL GmbH and Rheinmetall Project Solutions GmbH are jointly developing an offshore platform for ammunition disposal.

The danger posed to the environment and people by ammunition waste in the Baltic Sea has been known for many years. Politicians, associations and environmental organisations have long been engaged in intensive discussions to find suitable solutions. It is estimated that around 1.6 million tonnes of conventional and 220,000 tonnes of chemical warfare agents lie on the seabed off the German North Sea and Baltic coasts.
GERMAN NAVAL YARDS and Rheinmetall Project Solutions are engaged in a groundbreaking project to find a sustainable, innovative and environmentally friendly solution for removing these legacies of war.
