Gujarat State Fertilizers & Chemicals Ltd. - Impact Of Plants On Account Of Heavy Downpour In Vadodara

| Updated on August 02, 2019 Published on August 02, 2019

On account of heavy downpour close to 20 inches (499 mm) within a span of 12 hours on 31st July, 2019 and subsequent water logging in plant areas, all plants except Hydrogen Section of Ammonia-IV Plant and GTG Section of Cogeneration plant were effected in the Vadodara Unit of the Company.
Therefore, as precautionary measure, shutdown of plants were taken due to power interruption from 66 KV sub-station. Plants were stopped in safe manner with all due precautions. Dewatering of water logged 66 KV and plant substations, drying and preventive checking of electrical panels were taken prior to restoring power supplies to plants in phased manner yesterday morning i.e. on 1st August, 2019. No major untoward incident happened in the Company during the entire period and now all the operating plants are being restarted in phased manner. There would be no major financial implication on account of this as we plan to put up insurance claim for property damage/ production losses with insurers.
