LONDON (ICIS)--Versalis’ cracker in Dunkirk, France is in its start-up phase, a source of the Italy-based producer said on Wednesday.

"We are feeding in feedstock," the source said.

The cracker went down unexpectedly around 20 February because of an undisclosed technical problem.

Restart had originally been expected early last week.

The cracker has the capacity to produce 380,000 tonnes/year of ethylene and 210,000 tonnes/year of propylene, according to ICIS data.
