LONDON (ICIS)--Zaklady Azotowe Pulawy’s (ZAP) Melamine II plant is operating, following its planned turnaround, a source from the Polish fertilizer producer said on Tuesday.

The turnaround lasted longer than initially planned as sub-zero temperatures at the Pulawy-based plant in Poland slowed maintenance work.

“The plant itself is ready, it's back,” the source said. “We are doing our best to reach the usual high quality standard.”

The outage at the 30,000 tonne/year plant began in early March and had been expected to last approximately 20 days.

ZAP, in eastern Poland, has a melamine nameplate capacity of 96,000 tonnes/year.
