The company said it intends to restart its 135,000 tonne/year PVC plant on 13 August and its 40,000 tonne/year caprolactam (capro) installation on 15 August.
Spolana preventively shut down all its plants and moved production components and raw materials to secure areas on 3 June before the inundation of the production site during flooding that hit swathes of the Czech Republic and other parts of central Europe, killing several people.
Spolana was not immediately available for comment on the production outlook for plants apart from its PVC and capro units, such as its 150,000 tonne/year caustic soda plant and an ammonium sulphate fertilizer installation.
All Spolana's production facilities are in Neratovice, north of Prague, by the River Elbe.
