IFFCO has halted DAP and NPK production at its Paradip facility — which has a nameplate capacity of 1.5mn t/yr of DAP and 420,000 t/yr of NPK — since yesterday evening as a precaution against winds exceeding speeds of100 km/hour. But its 2.3mn t/yr sulphuric acid unit at the facility is operating as normal.
Another major producer PPL is producing DAP, NPKs, phosphoric acid and sulphuric acid at reduced rates. PPL's fertilizer complex — which can produce 1.2mn t/yr of DAP/NPKs, 660,000 t/yr of sulphuric acid and 225,000 t/yr of phosphoric acid — is located further away from the coast and so is likely to be less impacted by the cyclone. Its exact operating rates were not disclosed.
The cyclone has also affected operations at ports on India's east coast.
