SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Indonesia’s Chandra Asri has restarted its 600,000 tonne/year naphtha cracker at Cilegon in West Java after shutting it because of a power outage late last week, a company source said on Wednesday.

The company resumed operations at the cracker and derivative 225,000 tonne/year high density polyethylene (HDPE)/linear low density PE (LLDPE) swing facility at the same site on 20 August, the source said.

Chandra Asri shut both facilities on 18 August and is currently running them at reduced rates with plans to gradually ramp up their production, the source added.
