LONDON (ICIS)--Planned maintenance at Germany-based Vinnolit’s chlor-alkali maintenance at its Gendorf site is nearing completion, with a staggered plant restart in progress, said a company source on Thursday.
The chlor-alkali unit at the Gendorf site, in Germany, has resumed output and is close to normal operations, said the company source.
The ethylene dichloride (EDC) and vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) units are in restart mode, and the PVC facility is due to come back on line next week, noted the same source, who added that the maintenance started around ten days ago.
Contracts have been covered from stocks, said the source, who added that stocks need to be re-built.
Chlorine nameplate capacity at the Gendorf site, in Germany is 180,000 tonnes/year, according to the company source. Nameplate capacities for the other products were not disclosed.
