Netzer Hasharon Ltd. ("Netzer Hasharon") hereby submits a Request for Information to the public in connection with the construction of a facility for decontamination of explosives-contaminated equipment, in accordance with the rules and provisions detailed below.
- General Background
1.1 Netzer Hasharon is a government defence company entrusted with the treatment of contaminated soils and demolition of buildings at various sites. These sites are characterized, among other things, by contamination from explosives as a result of various activities in the past.
1.2 In the framework of projects that Netzer Hasharon is to carry out in the future, Netzer Hasharon is interested, among other things, in decontaminating equipment which is suspected of contamination with explosives and which has been dismantled from demolished ammunition plants (the "Equipment"). In light of the fact that the intention is to decontaminate equipment contaminated with explosive residues, to the best of Netzer Hasharon's knowledge, the contaminated Equipment is not expected to detonate (massive explosions). Decontamination of the contaminated Equipment will be performed using thermal treatment technology, the aim being to allow subsequent recycling of the decontaminated equipment.
1.3 For this purpose a dedicated facility will need to be constructed for decontamination of the Equipment in the TAAS Hasharon area as part of a project for remediation of contaminated soils, the final aim being to allow eventual settlement of an urban population in the area, while complying with regulatory requirements in Israel (the "Facility"). It is also possible that the construction of additional facilities at other sites will be required in the future.
