RIL to restart HDPE/LLDPE swing plant in Jamnagar after maintenance this week

September 04/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Reliance Industries Ltd. (RIL), plans to restart its high density polyethylene/ linear low density polyethylene (HDPE/LLDPE) swing plant this week after a scheduled turnaround, according to Apic-online.

A Polymerupdate source in India, informed that, the company commenced a turnaround at the plant, on August 26, 2019. The plant is slated to remain off-line, for a period of about 10 days.

Located at Jamnagar, Gujarat, India, the plant has a production capacity of 550,000 mt/year.

The company also operates a low density polyethylene (LDPE) plant with a capacity of 400 mt/year at the same site.

As MRC reported earlier, RIL started commercial operations at these two new polyethylene (PE) plants in Q2 2017.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 1,255,800 tonnes in the first seven months of 2019, up by 9% year on year. Shipments of all PE grades increased.

Reliance Industries is one of the world's largest producers of polymers. Thus, the company produces among others polypropylene, polyethylene and polyvinyl chloride.
