LONDON (ICIS)--Ammonia and urea production at Odessa Port Plant (OPZ) has returned to normal after a power cut forced the producer to halt output for several days last week, a source at the Ukrainian fertilizer company confirmed on Monday.

The producer's two ammonia lines and two urea lines went offline on 10 March following a power cut at the Yuzhny plant, but all four units had restarted by Saturday (16 March), an OPZ official said, adding the unplanned outage will not affect any ammonia or urea loadings for March.

OPZ normally exports 50,000 tonnes of ammonia per month, and 60,000 tonnes of urea per month, from the Black Sea port.
