Powering ahead [ID14D1]

05 November 2014

Roxel (Hall D, Stand D216), the French specialist in solid propulsion systems for rockets and cruise missiles, and Eurenco (Hall D, Stand D211), an expert in chemical synthesis and transformation of energetic molecules, have signed a co-operation agreement with state-owned PT Dahana (Hall D, Stand D061), which offers integrated explosives services.

The purpose of the partnership is to set up a production facility in Subang, which will produce extruded double base (EDB) propellant for rocket motors, and spherical powders for small and medium ammunition. The new plant is to be built and validated within four years.

This project is part of the intergovernmental defence agreement signed between France and Indonesia in 2012.
