The renewed utilization base corresponding to international standards was opened today in Dedoplistkskaro. The base will increase the current utilization performance in the future. The Deputy Minister of Defense Giorgi Khaindrava, General Director of State Military Scientific and Technical Center “Delta” Ioseb Loladze, the US Ambassador to Georgia Kelly C. Degnan and Director of Slovenian International Organization ITF Tomaž Lovrenčič inspected the completed infrastructure projects at the base and got acquainted with the working process.
Within the framework of the project – “Physical Security and Stockpile Management and Conventional Weapons Destruction in Georgia”, the utilization base was built at the request of the international company ITF, with the support and financing of the USA. It is planned to manufacture high-performance equipment/machinery at the base by “Delta”, as well as safe utilization/demilitarization of expired, decommissioned munitions.
In 2021, the Ministry of Defense signed a memorandum of understanding with the Human Security Strengthening Trust Fund (ITF) of the Republic of Slovenia, which aimed to partner in the demilitarization of munitions that have expired, are unusable for their primary purpose, and have been written off by the relevant authority.
