LONDON (ICIS)--Polish fertilizer producer Zaklady Azotowe Pulawy (ZAP) this week began a planned maintenance turnaround at one of its melamine plants in Pulawy, a source from the company has confirmed.
The outage at the 30,000 tonne/year Melamine II plant is expected to last approximately 20 days. The duration of the turnaround will be adjusted according to the company’s urea needs and melamine stock availability.
“Our melamine II plant has been stopped for a planned turnaround in March,” the source said. “The number of days will be adjusted to urea needs and melamine stocks. It would normally take 20 days, but we will see what happens with urea,” it added on Wednesday.
The agricultural season in Poland typically begins in April.
ZAP is located in Pulawy, eastern Poland, and has a melamine nameplate capacity of 96,000 tonnes/year.
