Fire breaks out at Slovnaft refinery, one person hospitalised

June 27/2013

MOSCOW (MRC) -- A fire occurred at the Bratislava-based oil refinery Slovnaft on Monday, June 24, said Spectator

"We started an ethylene unit, and there was a smaller fire during this start, but it was soon extinguished by our factory firemen," Slovnaft spokesperson Anton Molnar told the TASR newswire. "We did not need any help from outside, it was just a minor accident."

One man was examined at the hospital in Ruzinov, but his condition did not require further hospitalisation. "The man complained about problems with breathing, but examinations finally didnt reveal intoxication by combustion gasses," the spokesperson of the University Hospital Bratislava, which operates the Ruzinov hospital, Petra Stano Matasovska, said. "After the treatment, he felt better."

According to MRC data, Slovnaft has not been supplying PP-random to Russia since 2008. Several years before the company's shipments to Russia had been negligible. Slovnat had mostly supplied block copolymers and homopolymers of polypropylene to the Russian market. Overall, since 2008, Slovnaft has reduced imports of polypropylene to Russia by 6.5 times.

Slovnaft Petrochemicals, s.r.o., represents the Petrochemicals Division of Slovnaft Group. It produces polymers of high quality which are base materials with a broad range of uses. The geographical position of company gives it an important advantage when penetrating the quickly growing polymer markets of Central Europe.
