Daesan cracker brought on-stream by Hanwha Total

June 14/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Hanwha Total Petrochemical has restarted its Deasan cracker following a maintenance and debottlenecking exercise, as per Apic-online.

A Polymerupdate source in South Korea informed that the company has resumed operations at the cracker on June 10, 2019. The cracker was shut for maintenance and expansion in end-March, 2019.

Following the expansion, the ethylene capacity has been increased by 310,000 MT and propylene capacity by 120,000 MT.

Located at Daesan in South Korea, the cracker has an ethylene capacity of 1.09 million mt/year and propylene capacity of 640,000 mt/year.

As MRC reported earlier, Hanwha Total Petrochemical is investing approximately USD500m to further expand its Daesan integrated refining and petrochemical complex in South Korea. The company operates as a 50/50 joint venture (JV) between Total and Hanwha. The planned investment is expected to increase annual polypropylene capacity by almost 60% to 1.1 million tonnes and ethylene capacity by 10% to 1.5 million tonnes by the end of 2020.
