LONDON (ICIS)--Germany’s 4.5m tonne/year Heide refinery near Hamburg has been shut down for maintenance work, an official said on Friday.

Company spokeswoman Petra Klaehn told ICIS that the work began on 11 April and is expected to be completed by 2 May.

The work would cost about €18m ($24m), Klaehn added.

In addition to fuels, Heide produces some 450,000 tonnes/year of petrochemical products.

Heide is part of industrial and trading group Klesch, which bought the plant in 2010 from Anglo-Dutch chemical producer Shell.
