MOSCOW (MRC) -- Yeochun Naphtha Cracking Centre (YNCC) is in plans to restart its No. 1 naphtha cracker following a maintenance turnaround, as per Apic-online.

A Polymerupdate source in South Korea informed that the company has planned to complete turnaround at the cracker in end-June, 2019. The cracker was taken off-stream on May 20, 2019.

Located at Yeosu in South Korea, the cracker has an ethylene capacity of 860,000 mt/year and propylene capacity of 485,000 mt/year.

As MRC informed before, YNCC also has two other crackers at this site. Thus, the production capacity of its No. 2 naphtha cracker in Yeosu is 578,000 tonnes of ethylene per year ant that of its No.3 cracker - 470,000 tonnes of ethylene per year.
