NSRP to shut PP plant in Vietnam for maintenance

September 11/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Nghi Son Refinery & Petrochemical (NSRP) is planning a major overhaul at its polypropylene (PP) unit in Vietnam in June 2021, reported CommoPlast.

The production capacity of the company's PP line is 370,000 tons/year.

And the entire complex will be shut in 2023 for maintenance.

As MRC informed earlier, NSRP has been facing a persistent technical issue that forces the company to take its PP unit in Vietnam off-stream for a week starting 7 September for repair. This line was operating at reduced rates over the past couple of weeks before the shutdown.

We remind that in late June, 2020, NSRP was operating its PP plant in Vietnam at about 70% capacity following a change in the catalyst used in the production processes. The unit restored the normal rates in ten days.

We also remind that NSRP shut its PP unit on 21 June, 2019, owing to technical issues. The exact duration of the shutdown could not be ascertained. Besides, the company conducted a scheduled maintenance at this unit from 22 October, 2019, to end-November, 2019.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, overall PP production in Russia increased in January-July 2020 by 24% year on year to 1,063,700 tonne. ZapSibNeftekhim accounted for the main increase in the output.
