SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Japan’s Sun Allomer plans to restart its two polypropylene (PP) lines at Kawasaki by the end of March or early April as it expects power supply to the plants to be restored by then, a source close to the company said on Thursday.

One of Sun Allomer’s lines with a capacity of 67,000 tonnes/year was shut for maintenance when the earthquake struck and the other line with the same capacity was shut for safety reasons following the quake, the source said.

Maintenance at one of the lines was completed on 22 March, but both lines remained shut because of the power shortage, he said.
