VIENNA, AUSTRIA: Borealis has announced a major upgrading project at its production site in Porvoo, Finland. An investment of €65 million will serve to upgrade the Borstar polyethylene 2 (PE2) plant technology, thereby extending the Borstar PE platform. This investment follows on the heels of one announced earlier this year, namely the €25 million investment in the installation of a new hot oil heater unit at the phenol complex of the Porvoo plant.

“The Porvoo upgrade project is a sign of our commitment to further developing our proprietory Borstar technology, which is a cornerstone of our polyolefins success, and the establishment of one of the most modern fleets in Europe. It signals our dedication to European locations as well as the markets and customers they serve,” said Mark Garrett, Chief Executive, Borealis.
