BRATISLAVA, June 26, 2020 - At the end of June, the Slovnaft refinery will start shutting down some production units so that it can carry out turnarounds, maintenance and modernization during July. After finishing the work, the units will be gradually started to normal operation. The supply of customers during turnarounds and technological breaks will not be affected.

The turnarounds will affect two production units and the technological breaks will take place on three production units. During July, these facilities will be inspected for technical condition, maintained as well as modernized. In addition, the necessary repairs will be carried out on one production unit. The employees of the SLOVNAFT Group, as well as external employees, will be involved in the work, a total of approximately 700 people. Slovnaft's total investment in the planned activities is EUR 7 million.

Activities during general turnaround will be accompanied by combustion on field burners, increased noise levels and the formation of odors. Slovnaft's goal is to reduce the negative effects of activities that reduce the comfort of residents living in the vicinity of the refinery to the minimum.
