If it's "de", I'd suggest "unidad desactivadora"; if it's "re", then "reactivadora".


Explanation:
That is "poner en" or "sacar del" servicio activo.
But decommission is not "decomisar". This would be "to confiscate" or "to seize"...

Explanation:
Again, Mongo is right.
"To commission" also means all the activities required before a plant starts working: testing equipment, checking electrical and air systems, etc. I have translated it, in a gas processing plant, as "puesta a punto".
Hope it helps

Regards,

Patricia
