Chemical Weapons Destruction 

1. Chemical weapons of category 3 have been totally destroyed
(330 024 unfilled chemical munitions, burster and powder charges).

2. Chemical weapons of category 2 have been totally destroyed
(3 8444 chemical munitions filled with phosgene).

3. In April 2003 the Russian Federation completed the first stage of the destruction of chemical weapons of category 1 (at the facility in Gorny, Saratovskaya oblast, 400 tons of mustard were destroyed, i.e. 1% of agregate stockpiles of the chemical weapons of category 1). At the facility in Gorny in December 2005 the destruction of 1143,2 tons of poisonous substance was completed, i.e. 100 per cent of the stockpiles of the chemical weapons  of category 1 held at this facility.

4. In December 2005 the destruction of chemical weapons at the CW destruction facility in Kambarka, the Udmurt Republic, was started. As for 11 May 2006, more than 245,6 tons of lewisite have been destroyed. In mid-2006 the Russian Federation is planning  to start the use of the first train of the CW destruction facility in Maradikovskiy, Kirovskaya oblast. The construction of the CW destruction facilities in Schuchye, Kurganskaya oblast, Leonidovka, Penzenskaya oblast, Pochep, Brianskaya oblast, and Kizner, the Udmurt Republic, is under way.

5. Seven of 24 former chemical weapons production facilities are actually destroyed, one is to be destroyed before 29 April 2007, 12 of 16 former chemical weapons production facilities that are subject to conversion are conversed for the non-prohibited purposes and 4 facilities are at the final stage of their conversion.

Andreeva Bay (a former Russian Navy base)

A portfolio of growing projects where some 20,000 SNF assemblies are stored in totally unsatisfactory conditions from both a safety and security viewpoint. Over the timescale of the Global Partnership some £100 million may be committed by HMG for work at Andreeva in partnership with other donor countries

The underlying objectives of the projects are to identify solutions for existing safety, security and environmental problems of spent nuclear fuel (SNF) storage at Andreeva Bay acceptable to DTI, key Russian stakeholders and relevant regulatory bodies.  Project Management Consultants RWE NUKEM evaluate and monitor projects (except Atomflot) on behalf of the DTI, the following tasks and project:

As at June 2006 over 80 UK funded Russia and CIS projects are being supported and over 1200 jobs are to be created over the duration of the contracts/projects.

electricity substation on behalf of New Zealand on 14 February 2006.  The contract for the Canadian-funded Local Public Address System for providing early warning to local residents of a CW incident will be placed in mid 2006; construction will complete by end 2006. The Canadian-funded Inter-Site Communications project will also be constructed during the same time frame; this will provide improved communications between the storage and destruction facilities at Shchuch'ye. Work on completing the Shchuchanskaya electricity substation and associated infrastructure, for which equipment was procured earlier (serial 1 above), will start in August 2006, and should be complete in 2007. This project will be funded by UK, Norway, Czech Republic, Belgium, Sweden, Netherlands and other donors.

 

 

 

Chemical Weapons Destruction - Equipment Procurement

Procurement of main process equipment for the second munitions destruction building at the Shchuch'ye on behalf of Canada, UK, Netherlands and other donors.

Most of this equipment is being funded by Canada. The Catalytic Reactors procurement contract was placed on 24 March 2006 and will be complete in February 2007. The remaining equipment projects have been agreed with Canada and with FAI and are at the planning stage. All the procurement contracts will be in place by the end of September 2006. Procurement of the Metal Parts Furnace is complete, funded by the UK, the Netherlands and Ireland. Delivery will be in September 2006.

Implementation issues: 1. Apparent re-prioritisation of Russian funds, originally earmarked for Shchuch'ye infrastructure, to Maradykovsky and/or Kambarka, led to UK decision to complete other industrial infrastructure projects to ensure the earliest possible operation of the Shchuch'ye CWDF.

2. Delays in placing contracts for procurement of equipment for the second destruction building have occurred. However, other delays in the CWDF construction schedule have reduced the impact of procurement delays.
