Stirol chemical plant in occupied Horlivka is being transferred into idle mode with the appropriate staff optimization. This was stated by the "DNR" leader Denis Pushilin, - the separatist media report.
Earlier, the occupation authorities had repeatedly made loud statements about the allegedly upcoming launch of large-scale production of ammonium nitrate and carbamide at Stirol.
Now Pushilin admitted that the process was "temporarily suspended": there are problems with the supply of required volume of gas, there is no reliable scheme for the power supply of supercategory production, and so on.
"Before the war, the power supply system of Horlivka provided for 18 power lines with a voltage of 110 kV, eight of which were installed specifically for Stirol. At the moment, the power supply of Horlivka is carried out on three high-voltage lines of 110 kV, and only two lines are being led to the chemical plant", - he said.
"In order to ensure the safety of fixed assets of Stirol, the plant is being put into idle mode with personnel optimization to the level required to maintain the equipment in working condition", - the "DNR" leader stated.
