Rheinmetall Denel Munition Multi-Purpose Nitration Plant

Short Project Title: Rheinmetall Denel Munition Multi-Purpose Nitration Plant
   
Project Title: Background Information Document: Basic Assessment (BA) Process for the Development of Multi-Purpose Nitration Plant at Rheinmetall Denel Munition, Wellington
   
Project Synopsis: Background InformaRheinmetall Denel Munition RF (Pty) Ltd (RDM) operates an existing propellant and explosives manufacturing facility in Wellington. The existing RDX (Cyclotrimethylene Trinitramine) and PETN (Pentaerythritol tetranitrate) production plant is 35 years old and requires major intervention to improve safety and reliability. RDM thus intends developing a Multi-Purpose Nitration Plant (MPNP) which will allow for RDX, PETN and NTO (nitrotriazolone) to be manufactured in a single plant, allowing RDM to establish a secure supply of RDX and PETN as well as introduce NTO as an offering for munitions products. ion Document: Basic Assessment (BA) Process for the Development of Multi-Purpose Nitration Plant at Rheinmetall Denel Munition, Wellington
