Kem One declares FM on PVC shipments from its plant in Berre, France

September 08/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Frances Kem One has declared a force majeure (FM) on polyvinyl chloride (PVC) with K=70 supplies from its Berre unit in France, according to NCT with reference to a letter sent to its customers.

The company had to declare FM on September 2, 2021, following an equipment failure on the night of August 27 to 28, 2021.

It is not yet known when the equipment failure will be fixed or the force majeure will be lifted.

The plant has a suspension PVC production capacity of 290,000 tons/year through 3 fully automated production trains, according to Kem Ones web site.

As MRC reported earlier, Kem One declared an FM on PVC supplies from its Berre unit in France on April 15, 2021, because of a technical issue. The FM was lifted on June 30, 2021.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's overall production of unmixed PVC totalled 580,500 tonnes in the first seven months of 2021, up by 4% year on year. At the same time, one producer reduced its output.

Kem One, a fully integrated vinyl production company, was established mid-2012 following the acquisition of Arkema's vinyl products division by the Klesch Group. The company employs 2,600 people at 22 manufacturing sites, primarily in Europe but also in Asia and North America. Europes second-largest producer of PVC with revenues in excess of one billion euros, Kem One continues to grow and build on its numerous strengths with a view to becoming market leader for integrated vinyl solutions.
