Nammo Sweden (AB) Vingåker

The plant was established in 1967 as an assembly and explosives casting plant for the famous Swedish Carl-Gustaf system. Demilitarization operations started in 1970 and have grown to be one of the main activities at the site. The focus of demilitarization processing in our Swedish facility is safe, reliable and sustainable demilitarization. We endeavor to recover as much energetic material as possible that is then used in booster charges for the quarrying industry. Nammo Vingåker has developed a number of innovative explosive removal processes and engineering solutions in disassembly equipment for all types of explosives and ammunition. Approximately 30 employees are directly involved in the demilitarization process at Nammo Vingåker.

Nammo Sweden’s Capabilities Include:

  • Multiple disassembly processes including unscrewing/cutting/ de-fuzing/pulling
  • Automatic and semiautomatic processes
  • Pollution Abatement Systems
  • High volume energetic material melt out
  • Industrial recycling capabilities
  • Nammo’s R3 Philosophy
  • Scrap recovered and sold
  • Recycle revenue can offset demilitarization cost

Process:

  • High-speed disassembly and sorting equipment
  • Semi-automatic disassembly equipment
  • Thermal treatment:
    – Incineration in a rotary furnace and/or static kiln
    – Off-gases go through cyclones, filters and afterburners before release (emissions as per EU directives)
    – Ideal for high volume low NEQ, such as small caliber or fuzes/igniters

Contaminated Materials – Treatment Processes:

Nammo’s R3 Philosophy is especially applicable to Nammo Sweden’s work ethic. Environmental protection, recovery and reuse are at the heart of the demilitarization operation. These include:

  • Clean burn incineration
    – Off-gases go through cyclones, filters and afterburners before release
    – 5X level of decontamination
    – Scrap value recovered on sale of metal
  • Wastewater
    – Water contaminated with TNT, RDX and/or HMX from processes
    – Three-step operation processes of contaminated “pink water”
    – Water is recycled into an adjacent lake as “pure” to EU and local emission laws

 

Safety is our primary concern

Safety cell (bunker) operation means remote operations are behind explosion-shielding barriers and 600 mm steel reinforced concrete walls. This allows for safe disassembly operations to take place and for explosive removal operations to be conducted with minimal risk.
