Production has fallen back in the "EP-300" equipment and it is expected that the equipment will be brought to complete stop in these days. Work of some workshops has already been stopped because ready produce in the storehouses of the plant are not sold.

The administration of Azerkimya appealed to the government of the country in connection with the problem.
