Aegis Ashore Missile Defense Complex Romania
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Europe District is managing the construction of a $134 million Aegis Ashore Missile Defense Complex in Deveselu, Romania. In preparation for construction of this key facility, site activation work totaling $3.3 million has taken place to ready the 269-acre site at Deveselu Air Base for the project. A Romanian contractor, SC Glacial PROD SRL, constructed temporary facilities including offices, containerized housing, a warehouse and vehicle inspection area in support of the U.S. Ballistic Missile Defense complex project. Key partners representing the U.S., Romania and NATO will officially break ground on the Aegis Ashore Missile Defense project Oct. 28. The Aegis Ashore site in Romania is scheduled to be operational in the 2015 time frame.
