Aestate has won tender for contract to support OPCW in the realisation of the upgrade of the OPCW Lab to a Centre for Chemistry and Technology.

Over the past year, Daniel Koningen, Kirstin de Boer, Gerbert Poppenk and Bastiaan Peek have defined the programme of requirements, scouted and secured the potential location and advised on funding and procurement strategy. Proud to continue our contribution to this fantastic development!

The project to build an OPCW Centre for Chemistry and Technology is on-going and seeks to strengthen the OPCW’s Science and Technology capabilities to fully address the real threat of chemical weapons, as well as to support capacity building in OPCW Member States.

As the implementing body for the Chemical Weapons Convention, the OPCW oversees the global endeavour to permanently and verifiably eliminate chemical weapons. Since the Convention’s entry into force in 1997 – and with its 193 States Parties – it is the most successful disarmament treaty eliminating an entire class of weapons of mass destruction. For its extensive efforts in eliminating chemical weapons, the OPCW received the 2013 Nobel Peace Prize.
