NEW DEHLI (ICIS)--India-based Haldia Petrochemicals Limited (HPL) has restarted its cracker, polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) plants in West Bengal and are in the midst of ramping up, sources close to the company said on Thursday.
The restart ultimately took place on Wednesday.
A company official could not be reached to comment.
The cracker and polymer plants were shut for about two weeks because of technical issues, sources said.
