MONTREAL—A Montreal firm has won a contract for the decommissioning of a North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) base in Europe.

According to PyroGenesis Canada Inc., it was awarded the “small contract” to carry out basic engineering for one of its mobile plasma-based waste destruction systems at the base.

Awarded by an undisclosed European environmental services contractor, the contract is expected to be completed by the second quarter of 2014.

Contract specifics weren’t provided by PyroGenesis, but it said the customer “has successfully deployed specialty waste treatment systems to NATO and has specified the need for plasma technology in order to achieve” its decommissioning targets.


The base’s location or financial details of the deal were not provided by PyroGenesis, but the company said four more contracts could spin off the deal worth more than $10-million.
