It was announced last week that Slovnaft and a consortium of Tecnimont (Italy) and Tecnimont Planung and Industrieanlagenbau (Germany) had signed a contract to build a new polyethylene unit costing €204 million. This will increase polyethylene production capacity at Slovnaft by around 40,000 tonnes to 220,000 tonnes. The construction work is due to start in 2013 and production should begin in 2015.
