SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Indonesia's Chandra Asri restarted its derivative high density polyethylene (HDPE)/linear low density PE (LLDPE) swing facility in Cilegon, West Java, on Tuesday night after a brief shutdown caused by a power outage, a company source said on Wednesday.
“The PE plant was down for several hours but was restarted by yesterday night,” the source said, adding that the company’s upstream naphtha cracker – the only ethylene plant in Indonesia – was unaffected by the power outage in Cilegon that occurred late on 4 March.
The HDPE/LLDPE swing plant has a production capacity of 200,000-225,000 tonnes/year while the cracker’s nameplate ethylene capacity stands at 600,000 tonnes/year.
