The plant (pictured) is now steadily operating at approximately 80% of the design load due to limitations in the feed ammonia as well as some glitches in some units that will be ironed out in the next weeks.

The nitric acid produced has been, since the beginning, of good quality, with 60% strength and it is already being fed to the existing ammonium nitrate plant.
