Sunflower Redevelopment LLC in Kansas City, MO received a $109 million requirements-type contract with delivery orders for the environmental remediation and explosives decontamination of 9,065 acres of land formally known as Sunflower Army Ammunition Plant in Johnson County, Kansas, USA. Sunflower Army Ammunition Plant was established in 1941 as the world’s largest powder and propellant plant, later playing a historic role providing munitions during World War II, and the Korean and Vietnam conflicts. The ammunition plant is now an excess property. It no longer produces ammunition, and Congress enacted legislation in October 2004 authorizing the Army (in consultation with the General Services Administration) to complete transfer of Sunflower to an entity selected by the Johnson County Board of Commissioners: the Sunflower Redevelopment LLC. Sunflower Redevelopment, LLC, will perform the remediation work at the former ammunition plant’s site, with planned completion by Dec. 13, 2012. The U.S. Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command Rock Island at Rock Island, IL issued the contract (W52H09-05-D-5007).
