On Friday morning, the rescue service was summoned to the Arlanda site in Dalton, due to alarms on the ammonia emissions of a building.
How many employees were affected by the release?
– There were two of the staff in the room when it happened, but no one was injured. The staff left the room where the gas is available, says Brattal.
Just after the alarm, production stopped for a while.
– The slowdown happened outside the production itself. It was a short break when it was worrying, but now we are running again, says Eric Brother.
The rescue service is located in the facility with two chemists in the building and two other chemists on site.
"What is happening is that we have chemical dikers that shut the valve to stop the leak. It may take one to two hours before they come into force, "says Thomas Johnson, an external rescue officer.
According to the Centers for Security and Alarm in Kalmar, 100 meters in the direction of the wind are blocked but discarding does not pose a risk to the public.
"We plan to ventilate the space and wash the cloud," says Thomas Johnson.
