The plant’s smaller reactor, which has a nameplate capacity of 30,000 tonnes/year, was taken off line over the weekend of 27–28 November 2010 and restarted on Monday 24 January 2011, the source said.
The reactor had been due to restart on 12 January 2011, but had been delayed by technical problems following the catalyst change, a separate source at the French specialty chemical producer previously confirmed.
The shutdown had not affected the PA supply-demand balance in Europe because cold weather had limited downstream construction activity.
