SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--DSM Kaltim Melamine (DKM) will be shutting down its 60,000 tonne/year melamine unit at Bontang in East Kalimantan, Indonesia, for two weeks in July for maintenance, a source close to the company said on Tuesday.
“The exact time can only be confirmed again nearer the shutdown,” the source said.
DKM is a joint venture of Dutch chemicals and life sciences group DSM, Indonesian state-owned fertilizer firm PT Pupuk Kalimantan Timur and PT Barito Pacific Lumber Company.
DSM announced last month that Egypt-based Orascom Construction Industries (OCI) would be acquiring DSM's fertilizer and melamine businesses with the deal expected to be closed by Q2 2010, pending regulatory approvals.
