Serbian Defense Minister Aleksandar Vulin yesterday opened a new facility at Prva Iskra Namenska a.d. in Baric, near Obrenovac, called “objekat T-4”, where delaborated explosives will be processed. Vulin reminded that Prva Iskra was destroyed during the NATO bombing.
As the Ministry of Defense announced, he added that the company could now be competitive with any such company in the world.
– This of course means a lot to the defense industry of Serbia, because it is an important component for Krusik and Sloboda, but also for the Serbian Armed Forces – he said.
Talking about the importance of the new facility, the director of Prva Iskra Namenska a.d, Stanoje Biocanin, said that “objekat T-4” would “process delaborated explosives based on a composition of hexogen and octogen with TNT”.
– The aim is to unload other facilities, thereby increasing their safety and capacity, and to increase the range of products and with that the exporting capabilities of this company – he said.
He announced that 1,500 kilograms of delaborated explosives would be processed there and that, daily, 500 kilograms of hexogen-based explosives and 500 kilograms of explosives based on TNT would be produced, the ministry says on its website.
