There is a significant amount of obsolete, unstable, deteriorated and otherwise unserviceable ammunition left in Bulgaria. Ammunition surplus poses a direct danger to the local population and is seeking to be demilitarized. Numerous Unplanned Explosions on Munitions Sites (UEMS) have affected Bulgaria in recent years and in some areas left the surface, subsurface and some nearby water areas contaminated by unexploded ordnance (UXO).
What we do
Destruction of Surplus Weapons and Ammunition
ITF had been provided with funds for assisting in cleaning surface, subsurface and water areas contaminated as a result of UEMS located in Chelopechene, Bulgaria. Vegetations were removed inside ammunition storage area, various types of ammunitions were detected, excavated, identified and handed over to Bulgarian Armed Forces for further disposal. ITF was responsible for managing the project of UXO clearing activities.
