Following a fire at K+S’s Hattorf site, the process control system power supply has been damaged. The company reported that there were no injuries and fire fighters attended the situation quickly. The repair is expected to take approximately three weeks.
Moreover, K+S stated that the production of Epsom salt from intermediate products supplied has not been affected by the fire. This production is conducted in a separate operational section of the Hattorf site. Production at the two other Werra plant sites, Wintershall and Unterbreizbach, is continuing normally.
The employees affected, so far as possible, will be deployed at other sites.
