Inauguration of EXPAL’s Demilitarization plant in Belarus


2014.06.05 EXPAL


The Project is the result of an international tender launched by the European Union that EXPAL was awarded, and it contemplates the destruction of 3.400.000 mines.

The inaugural ceremony took place on May 27th, at the plant EXPAL has installed in Belarus for the destruction of PFM-1 Mines in this country.

The Defence Deputy Minister of Belarus acted as chairman to the ceremony, which was also attended by high representatives of the European Union, an ample representation of ambassadors to Belarus, Military authorities and EXPAL representatives.
The Project is the consequence of an international tender launched by the European Union that EXPAL was awarded, and it contemplates the destruction of 3.400.000 mines.
The plant has been specially designed and built by EXPAL to carry out the scope of the project. Safety and complying with European Environmental standards have been fundamental parameters in the development and building of the facilities and the design of its processes, thought specifically for the destruction of this type of ammunition. These are the first facilities capable of taking on this task that has never before been performed.
The EC’s support for the destruction of Belarus stockpiles of PFM-1 landmines is linked with the Government of Belarus`s ratification of the Convention on the Prohibition of the Use, Stockpiling, Production and Transfer of Anti-Personnel Mines and on their destruction.

EXPAL Develops a New, Safer Initiation System


December 11, 2013 by EXPAL


The new S-402, as this initiation system is called, incorporates an innovative technology that significantly increases security during its use.


The S-402 is a safe initiation system, developed to minimise involuntary initiation due to static, stray or induced currents. Its technology is innovative in the defence realm: the exploder and detonators have been upgraded with digital electronics in order to substantially increase operative use safety.


The new system has also reduced the long safety protocols required by conventional initiators, which increases the deployment and use speed. Other features worth mentioning are its use flexibility, prompt start by elimination of cable-connection times, and reduced weight and volume.


The S-402 consists of an ES-402 exploder, and DS-402 detonators. The ES-402 exploder has the capacity to check and initiate up to ten electric DS-402 detonators. This system can be used in a radio-environment / Electronic Counter Measures or static currents.


It presents a sturdy configuration and safe use features, while maintaining a light weight and volume. The system is incorporated to the operator's equipment, and is carried on a belt. It is ideal for the use of engineers, special operations units, EOD specialists, police or rescue teams in explosive disposal missions, or intervention and people rescue in catastrophes.


EXPAL has extended experience in the design, development and manufacturing of initiation systems, demolition charges and EOD. These products can be found among the equipment used by the Spanish Armed Forces, and the armies of other countries.
