LONDON (ICIS)--Polish fertilizer producer Zaklady Azotowe Pulawy (ZAP) is expected to complete the turnaround on its melamine plant within the next few days, a source from the company said on Wednesday.
“The maintenance break on Melamine II is almost over, but we still need some single days to get the product,” the source said.
The planned outage at the 30,000 tonne/year Melamine II plant began in early March and was expected to last approximately 20 days.
The turnaround was delayed by cold temperatures at the plant. “It has been around minus 10 to minus 12 degrees Celsius at night here,” the source previously said.
ZAP’s Melamine I and Melamine III plants are running. “Today we still have two plants working only,” the source added.
ZAP is in Pulawy, eastern Poland, and has a melamine nameplate capacity of 96,000 tonnes/year.
