Local fire personnel helped create a landing space for the helicopter following the medical emergency at the industrial rubber plant.
The bleed valve in question was connected to a process line. Despite the ignition, the plant is operating normally. ARLANXEO stated that they “will be further investigating this incident…with Health and Safety personnel.”
