In its regulatory filing, Gujarat State Fertilizers & Chemicals Limited notified the forced safe shutdown of the Urea-II Plant.

The Urea-II plant was running normally at 105%, and the Titanium MOC lined high-pressure Urea Reactor (XUR-101) was in service. The leakage in the bottom thermo well of the Urea Reactor (XUR-101) was discovered during the night shift on July 16, 2022.

The necessary steps for a safe plant shutdown were immediately taken.

Following all statutory checks, the estimated time required to prepare the standby Urea Reactor (XUR-102) for lining up will be twelve days, subject to time availability and passing the special Welder qualification test.

Considering the shutdown and restart sequence, a total of thirteen days of production loss of approximately 10,400 MT of Neem Urea is anticipated.

The company further stated that during this time, the Urea-l plant will continue to produce at the existing 320 MTPD capacity.

At around 1.55 PM, Gujarat State Fertilizers was trading at Rs141.30 up by 1.76% from its previous closing of Rs138.85 on the BSE. The scrip touched intraday high and low of Rs143.10 and Rs139.50 respectively.
