BOP declares force majeure at Polish plant


Poland-based polyolefin manufacturer Basell Orlen Polyolefins (BOP) has announced force majeure on production of four grades of HDPE made at its production facility in Płock, Poland, reported local news site
BOP informed its customers that the halt in production was due to both technical problems and stock exhaustion. The manufacturer also said that deliveries are expected to resume shortly.
Established in March 2003, BOP is the country’s sole manufacturer of polyolefins. The company is a 50% joint venture between Poland’s leading petrochemicals group PKN Orlen and LyondellBasell.
The plant in Płock has an annual production capacity of about 320,000 tonnes of HDPE, according to the manufacturer’s figures. BOP also operates a second factory in Płock with an output capacity of about 400,000 tonnes of PP per annum. Built at a cost of approximately €500m, the two facilities started production in late 2005.
