The fourth NATO/PfP Trust Fund project in Serbia follows
a request for assistance from Serbia to NATO for the
destruction of surplus conventional ammunition, initially
estimated as up to 8,000 tonnes.Status:
To date, 235 tonnes of ammunition have been demilitarized. A serious incident in February 2017 has paused high rate demilitarisation activity until capacity is re-established in spring 2019.
As at June 2019, the project had provided over MEUR 1.2
worth of improvements and new equipment, including a
new fire en-gine, ambulance and forklift truck.
A proposal to extend the project
by two years to spring 2022 and in-crease the budget to
MEUR 5.60 is under final approval at NATO HQ. This will
allow time for the demilitarisation of the original quantity of
surplus ammunition and additional tasks to support the
MOI under the Western Balkan initiative.
Project launched in July 2013 and started implementation in March 2016 and is expected to be completed in Spring 2022.
