Glamoc Destruction Site is capable of disposing of up to Two Tons of Explosives per day

 

The Commander of EUFOR, Major General Reinhard Trischak and the US Ambassador, His Excellency Eric Nelson, flew to the ammunition destruction site at Glamoč, on Tuesday 24 September.

They received a briefing on the work going on there and took part in the destruction of some excess ammunition, which if not disposed of properly can, as it deteriorates, become a significant safety risk to the population of BiH.

Glamoč destruction site is capable of disposing of up to two tons of explosives per day; however the actual amount disposed of daily depends very much on the type of explosive and the atmospheric conditions.

The Commander of EUFOR was also accompanied by a selection of EUFOR’s weapons and ammunition specialists who also benefitted from the briefing and were able to observe the destruction of the ordnance.
