Plant malfunction

Buzzi Unicem hereby informs that this morning, at the Robilante cement plant, 
an anomaly occurred in the uninterruptible power supplies, which led to the interruption of electricity supply to all the systems with consequent halt of material supply (meal) and of incoming fuels to the two clinker lines.
This anomaly caused a momentary leakage of pulverized raw material (in jargon meal) from the preheater tower of "Kiln 3", which remained confined within the plant perimeter.
The power supply has been restored and the activities for restarting the clinker line are in progress.
There were no consequences for both the workers’ safety and the surrounding environment.
All the competent bodies were promptly informed.
