A thirty-minute disruption in the power supply from an external station halted production at the Gdańsk refinery. The incident has had no impact on sales of petroleum products manufactured at the refinery.
The safety systems worked properly. After the power supply was restored, the refinery staff commenced work to stabilise refinery operations and bring units back on stream. The power outage and the subsequent shutdown of most of the refinery processing units did not pose a threat to human life or health or to the environment. Normal operations will be restored within the next two or three days.
