LONDON (ICIS)--Wilmar International’s natural fatty alcohols plant at Huntsman’s chemical site in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, has faced further start-up delays, a company source said on Thursday.

The plant was previously expected to be running by the beginning of the fourth quarter, but continues to be plagued by unforeseen delays in its completion.

No reason was given for the delay, but the source said it was now expecting the plant to be up and running in “early January.”

The source added that Wilmar was now going through the testing processes at the plant.

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