Fire at INEOS Köln plant

19
Mar '08
At approximately 14:30 hours 17th March 2008 an emission of ethylene from the main pipeline that feeds the INEOS plant at Köln ignited causing a fire at the facility. A stock tank near to the initial incident also caught fire.

Around 600 firefighters attended in and around the plant with an additional 600 members of the emergency services in support.

The ethylene pipeline was isolated and the fire extinguished at around 19:00 hours (17/03/08). The fire on the acrylonitrile stock tank was brought under control at 23:50 that evening. Fire fighters have remained on-site to cool and monitor the tank.

At 19:30 this evening (18/03/08) local residents in the village of Worringen, to the south of the site have been informed by the Köln Authorities that the precautionary advice to remain indoors has been lifted.

INEOS apologizes to local residents and those that have been affected by the incident and thanks them for their understanding and patience as it has dealt with this incident.

The company also thanks the emergency services for their assistance in successfully tackling the fire and containing the impact.

INEOS will now implement a full and thorough investigation into the causes that led to this incident.
