Technical incident to ammonia installation
On July 7, there was an explosion at one of the Ammonia production platforms in Azomures, Romania. The fire was extinguished shortly after the explosion, with the area isolated. One employee was injured. He received all necessary medical attention at the hospital and has been discharged on the same day. No ammonia emissions were recorded and, throughout the intervention, the safety of other employees, the operation of the other facilities on the platform and the local community were not endangered. Azomures, a modern industrial installation with EU safety standards in force, has begun an internal investigation into the technical incident and cooperates with local authorities.
