FM on Ineos’ European PVC to be lifted in October

September 21/2009
September, 21 ( -- Ineos ChlorVinyls hopes to lift force majeure on its 1.3m t/y European PVC production with effect from 1 October.

The company declared FM in mid-July after a power failure at Rafnes / Norway knocked out production of VCM feedstock. The VCM plant was restarted in August, but is still operating at a reduced rate.

Despite the product shortage, scheduled maintenance at Rafnes is being carried out as scheduled, but maintenance at the Porsgrunn / Norway PVC plant will be delayed.
