Borealis expands Stenungsund LDPE plant

June 03/2010

(Borealis) -- Borealis customers can count on a reliable partner for growth following Borealis’ completion of an over EUR 400 million investment at its plant in Stenungsund, Sweden. A new 350,000 t/y high pressure LDPE plant along with modernised compounding and material-handling facilities were officially inaugurated on June 2, 2010, increasing total capacity at the site from 580.000 t/y to 700.000 t/y.

 

The world’s leading provider of innovative, value creating plastics solutions for the wire and cable industry has expanded its Stenungsund facilities while maintaining a closed operation process to eliminate potential sources of impurities. The plant was designed and constructed with the highest wire and cable quality standards in mind.

 

The capacity expansion builds on Borealis’ existing technology platform and demonstrates its commitment to high quality, well-known brands such as Supercure and Visico. The capacity will be focused specifically on Borealis’ newest products such as Supercure LS4201 and LC8205 and special products for extra high voltage cables LE4201EHV and LE4244EHV. Its Visico products for low and medium voltage cables LE4423, LE4421 and LE4421M will also benefit from the controlled environment in place at Stenungsund.
