LONDON (ICIS)--Polimeri Europa’s cracker at Dunkirk, France is in restart phase but not yet fully back on line following an unexpected shutdown last month, a company source said on Thursday.
The cracker had previously been expected to restart over the weekend of 19-20 November but this was delayed because additional checks were required.
A force majeure declaration on propylene and ethylene supplies at the site, which came into effect after the shutdown on 23 October, will be lifted at a later stage once operations are running well and some stocks are rebuilt, added the source.
