Proman has taken the decision to immediately shut down two of its plants.

The company’s managing director Claus Cronberger in a statement to his colleagues explained this is it “has been unable to secure an economically viable short term gas supply for the month of April.”

He said the company therefore made the “extremely difficult decision” to idle its M4 and M5000 plants effective immediately. The company’s M2 and M3 plants will continue running on DeNovo gas only.
