Egypt’s SIDPEC operating at full capacity
SIDPEC had restarted their HDPE film and blow moulding swing line, which started to operate at half capacity, last week shortly after a 24 hour shutdown. However, they failed to resume operations on their HDPE injection production line.
This week, a source from the producer commented, “We resumed our plant’s operations completely as of April 9 and we are now operating at full capacity. We currently hold sufficient ethane gas supplies and we will start our deliveries as of today. This week, we are planning to deliver HDPE injection and film grades to the market since our HDPE film/blow moulding swing line is set to produce HDPE film until April 20. Meanwhile, demand has been gradually improving but ongoing liquidity issues are still hindering our sales performance in the local market.”
