2018-06-12    [Source:PUdaily]

Dear Customer,

INEOS, the operator of our Hexamethylenediamn (HMD) plant in Seal Sands, has informed us on May 31, 2018 about an unexpected electrical failure that affects the complete production site. In consequence, the HMD plant was shut down unexpectedly. As a result of the abrupt shutdown, damages to a number of critical components of the production unit are significant. This will require several weeks for repair and restart.

As a result of these unforeseen problems and the consecutive shut-down of the HMD plant, which is outside of our reasonable control, BASF SE expects substantial supply constraints and is forced to revise its allocation quote for the products affected by the Force Majeure declaration of January, 24th, 2018 (HMD, AH-Salt and all Polyamide 66 polymers and compounds: Ultramid A, Capron PA66). At this stage, we are not in the position to seriously predict how long the present Force Majeure situation will last. In the meantime, the provisions of the Force Majeure clauses stipulated in our Terms and conditions of Sale and/or in our individual agreed contracts will continue to apply.

Currently the allocation details for the existing orders are evaluated. We will contact you on a timely basis to discuss your specific supply situation and our efforts to minimize the consequences of this event to your company.

Please be assured that we are doing our utmost to resolve the problem as promptly as possible. As you would expect we will remain in close contact with you and will keep you informed with regard to further developments

Thank you for your understanding and your support in this situation.

For any questions, our sales representatives and our customer service are at your disposal.
