LONDON (ICIS news)--Dow Chemical restarted its Terneuzen No 2 cracker in the Netherlands at the weekend after an unplanned outage, but was not yet running the unit at full rates, confirmed a company source on Monday.
Two furnaces still needed repair work, after the cracker went down on 9 January due to a power failure, the source said.
It was not clear how long this work would take at the 575,000 tonne/year unit, one of three crackers operated by Dow at the site.
The No 2 cracker will go down for planned maintenance between 20 March and 26 April.
