Expansion to enable broad supply of Borealis solutions for wire and cable sector

03-Jun-10
Borealis’ Stenungsund expansion will enable broad supply of Borealis solutions for wire and cable sector. Borealis has completed an over €400 mln investment at its plant in Stenungsund, Sweden. A new 350,000 tpa 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 tpa to 700,000 tpa. The company 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 expansion makes Stenungsund a leading world-scale polyethylene facility for advanced infrastructure applications and is a continuation of a EUR 42 million cross-linkable polyethylene (XLPE) capacity upgrade already taken on stream during 2007. This new investment will in addition enable Borealis to maximise the flexible feedstock – olefin – polyolefin integration. Old polyethylene capacity of 230,000 tpa will be gradually phased out during 2010.
