Quote:An as of yet unidentified substance in a waste container unit at the Forcit Vihtavuori explosives plant at Laukaa is believed to have caused a chemical reaction, posing a potential hazard at a facility that manufactures explosives used in mining and blasting.

Containers and warehouses at the site contain explosive equivalent to 11 tons of TNT.

More as this unfolds. They make chemical explosives for military and mining industries. xinhuanet incorrectly reported it as gunpowder.

Yeah my daughter told me she got some emergency message on the phone this morning about it. They've also been broadcasting warning messages over the radio today telling people to stay away from the area.

I remember back in 1976 an ammunition factory some 150 km south of us exploded. And we could hear it. damned.gif

Quote:Lapua is also home to a large ammunition factory, which commenced operations in 1927 as the State Cartridge Factory. This factory was the primary supplier of ammunition to the Finnish Army during the Winter War and World War II. An explosion occurred in a warehouse of this factory on 13 April 1976, resulting in the deaths of 40 employees, mainly females.

Well the situation is still ongoing. I'm just reading a mind-blowing article where the head of risk management at Forcit says:

"We don't know what's in the container."

It's apparently some waste returned for destruction to the facility by a customer, but they don't know if it's liquid or solid or what the hell it is. Right now they're using a robot (?) trying to cool down the container itself to keep it from reaching critical temperature.

There are 200 such containers in that same location, right next to the warehouse that houses 40 tons of explosives.

Insane damned.gif

What's going on with all the negligence in safety in this situation and with other flammable/explosive products and transportation? It's mind boggling. sad2.gif

Yes, they cooled the container down enough that it could be moved. The people were allowed back home 3 hours ago.
