Yara annonserer stenging av fabrikk i Trinidad13.11.2019 19:00:00 CETPressemelding

Oslo, 13. november 2019: Yara annonserer stenging av sin heleide fabrikk i Point Lisas, Trinidad. Fabrikken er ett av tre ammoniakkanlegg drevet av Yara Trinidad Ltd. De to gjenværende anleggene, Tringen I og Tringen II, er eid av Yara sammen med National Enterprises Ltd (NEL). Fabrikken i Trinidad er en av Yara sine minste ammoniakkanlegg, med en årlig produksjonskapasitet på omtrent 270.000 tonn ammoniakk. I tillegg til begrenset skala har fabrikken lavere energieffektivitet enn gjennomsnittet av Yaras fabrikker. Fabrikkens lønnsomhet har dessuten vært påvirket av fallende ammoniakkpriser, og i tillegg har forhandlingene med The National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago (NGC) ikke lykkes i å oppnå en avtale som kunne sikret videre drift av fabrikken. Yara vil iverksette tiltak for å stenge fabrikken og avslutte produksjonen innen 31. desember 2019. Stengingen er tentativt forventet å generere en kostnad på omtrent USD 25 millioner som vil bli klassifisert som en spesiell post i Yar
