How a chemical plant in Vadodara burst into flames


On June 2, several loud explosions echoed throughout the industrial town of Nandesari in Vadodara Gujarat, spreading panic among the nearby residents.

Over 10 fire tenders rushed to a Deepak Nitrite facility last evening when a massive fire broke out at the chemical factory. Thick clouds of smoke engulfed the region forcing authorities to relocate 700 people living in the vicinity.

Although the cause of the disaster has not been ascertained and no casualties have yet been reported, 7 workers have been hospitalised due to excessive smoke inhalation.

Considering the sheer magnitude of the explosions that took place, most of the factory’s factory assets are likely to have perished.

With a loss amounting to hundreds of Crores, is Deepak Nitrite Company equipped to recover?
