PRAGUE (ICIS)--A restart of ammonium nitrate fertilizer production at Poland's Zaklady Azoty Tarnow (ZAT) has been delayed by one week, the company said on Tuesday.

Production was taken offline on 7 January following the breakdown of a turbo unit in ZAT's nitric acid plant.

The initial expectation was that repairs would enable production to resume by 14 January, but the target date has now been put back to 21 January, ZAT added.

The fertilizer unit has a capacity of 460,000 tonnes/year, while the nitric acid plant has a capacity of 44,000 tonnes/year.

ZAT is located in Tarnow in southeastern Poland.
