LONDON (ICIS)--The start-up of Wilmar International’s natural fatty alcohols plant at Huntsman’s chemical site in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, has faced further delays and is now expected to be up and running by the beginning of the fourth quarter, a source at the company said on Wednesday.

“I am hopeful it [the plant] will be running by October at the latest,” the source said.

The plant was previously anticipated to be running by the end of the third quarter.

No reason was given for the delay.

The 120,000 tonne/year plant is owned by Wilmar and is in Huntsman's 85 hectare chemical site in Rozenburg, Rotterdam.

The plant will supply natural alcohols to Huntsman, as well as for the European market.
