Ammonia plant start-up
21 Apr 2017
Maintenance works at Orica’s ammonia plant are complete and the start-up process is now underway. During this process, which will last for up to 10 days, you may notice some different sights and sounds.
• Gases will be vented from the high point stacks for extended periods and it’s likely that these will ignite. This is a normal part of the start-up process and nothing to be concerned about.
• Increased levels of steam will be visible as the cleaning of pipes is undertaken and catalysts are activated.
• Elevated noise levels may occur due to commissioning checks. These checks are scheduled to be undertaken only during daytime hours.
