LONDON (ICIS news)--The main diesel production line at Neste Oil’s Porvoo refinery is back up after it had to be shut down due to fire, the Finland-based company said on Monday.

“For the time being the line operates with lighter than normal input because in certain parts of the line repair work will continue throughout September,” it said in a statement.

“Repair costs are expected to total approximately €5m ($7m), Neste Oil added.

The fire broke out on 6 August and was thought to have been the result of a leak from a heat exchanger, the company said at the time.

No one was injured during the fire.

($1 = €0.70)
