An explosion thundered at the Odessa refinery

30

Ukrainian sources publish material that an explosion occurred at one of the industrial enterprises in Odessa. According to the latest information, we are talking about an explosion at the Odessa oil refinery.


Eyewitnesses living in the area called Shkodova Gora write on social networks about a powerful explosion that thundered at the refinery in the dark.

According to the latest reports, the emergency at the facility occurred at about midnight local time. A fire broke out at the refinery, electricity was cut off in the surrounding neighborhoods.

At the moment, it is reported that the epicenter of the explosion, probably, was an electrical substation located on the territory of an oil refinery.


The movement of vehicles on the road adjacent to the refinery was stopped for several hours.

According to some reports, there was a sharp voltage surge in the plant's electrical supply system before the explosion. Official data on the cause of the explosion at the Odessa refinery has not yet been provided.

We will remind that earlier the Odessa oil refinery flashed in reports in connection with attempts to carry out its raider seizure.

    If you do not invest in infrastructure and do not repair or replace transformers, then they will fail, and may burst. Judging by the state of infrastructure in Ukraine, this is not surprising.

          Or maybe dear Wwk7260, it's just that he lives in the wrong Moscow !!! laughing
          After all, there are at least 25 settlements in the world with the name "Moscow". In Russia - as many as four Moscow, one each in Scotland, Belgium, Canada and India; as many as 19 towns of the same name are located in different states of the United States - from Ohio to Vermont. Maybe just in that "Moscow", which in Vermont and stinks of "ammonia - gasoline aroma" ..... In the morning !? wassat

          In general, Maryino was built on the filtration fields, you can't even smell gasoline there, and if it's seriously Maryino west of the Moscow Refinery, and the main winds from the west to the east, maybe that's why, on the Moscow Ring Road (I'm going from the northeast), the aroma starts to be felt very significantly from the intersection with Volgogradka. on the other hand, if you live nearby, you are most likely used to it.

      withdrawal "provokes" a rapid depreciation of large enterprises. Even this way. Then they will buy it for a pittance. And denyushka will flow 100 pounds to offshore. The tricks of the waltzman will cough for a long time.

      This refinery 7 years ago went through a deep modernization, but practically all this time it did not work due to litigation. So, there is definitely no "deterioration of infrastructure" there. We (in Odessa) believe that there was an attempt to steal non-ferrous metals, but "something went wrong" ((

        Strange coincidence of two events in time
        In the black, oddly enough, Poland, which announced that it would help to compensate Ukraine for the risks of stopping the supply of Belarusian fuels and lubricants

      Someone decided to squeeze out the plant, under the guise of Belarus.

      Well what are you! Karasin from oil and Westinghouse are different things. Karasin burns, and Westinghouse explodes.

    Official data on the cause of the explosion at the Odessa refinery has not yet been presented.
    Not long before the explosion:

    Kuleba:

    We put on pause all contacts with Belarus. We are now monitoring the development of the situation.

    What a weird coincidence, huh?

      Come on! This is Putin's hand to divert attention from his visit to Crimea for the opening of the next section of the Tavrida highway wink But what a fanatic he is - he will open a section of the road and a visit! Acts directly with cynicism lol

    It's good that not an ammunition depot.
    Otherwise, there would be little left of Odessa.
    There and so, every day, the houses are crumbling from decay.

    Short circuit of oil transformer. Fire at the substation. It will burn out, sweep and put in a new transformer. Routine.
