LONDON (ICIS)--Poland's Polski Koncern Naftowy Orlen SA (PKN) has restarted its ethylene oxide (EO) and ethylene glycol (EG) plants in Plock, Poland, following a maintenance shutdown, a company source said on Friday.

"We started up with some small delay…we are up now", the source said.

The shutdown at the 115,000 tonne/year EO and 70,000 tonne/year EG plants began on 1 September and they were due back up on 25 September.

PKN has not been active in the spot EG market through September and has no plans to do so during part of October because of the outage.
