LONDON (ICIS)--Dow Chemical plans to restart its No 1 cracker at Terneuzen, the Netherlands, over the 30 April–1 May weekend following planned maintenance, a company source said on Wednesday.
“[The] cracker is on track to start up this weekend,” the source said.
There has been some market speculation that the cracker's restart had been delayed, as earlier estimates suggested the plant would be back on line on 25 April.
The source added that the latest planned restart dates are still within the scheduled timeframe.
Dow's 180,000 tonne/year butadiene (BD) extraction unit at the Terneuzen site will also be restarted along with the No 1 cracker, the source said.
