MBDA Inaugurates French Complex Munitions Demilitarisation Facility

Tarih: Issue 54 - July 2014

 Antoine Bouvier, MBDA’s Chief Executive Officer, in the presence of civil and military authorities, inaugurated France’s complex munitions demilitarisation facility at MBDA’s Bourges Subdray site in the Centre region of France. 

 Having set up this facility in only two years, MBDA is in line with the schedule aimed at allowing France to fulfill the commitment it made in signing the Oslo Convention in July 2009. The Convention prohibits the use and stockpile of cluster bombs and calls for all signatories to have destroyed their stock of such military hardware by 2018.
