TPC to conduct turnaround at its PP plant in Singapore

July 16/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- The Polyolefins Company (TPC) is planning to shut its polypropylene (PP) plant in Jurong Island, Singapore in mid-July 2021 for maintenance, according to CommoPlast with reference to market sources.

The turnaround at this plant is expected to last for 45 days.

Only part of the unit would be shut during the time, according to a source close to the producer. Affected grades might include PP random copolymers and terpolymer, wherease the homo-PP line would remain operating.

TPC also operates a low density polyethylene (LDPE) plant in Ayer Merbau with a capacity of 260,000 mt/year of LDPE.

The company's polyolefins plants in Singapore receive feedstock from No. 2 cracker of the Petrochemical Corporation of Singapore (PCS), which will also be shut for 30 days of repairs in July.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, PP shipments to the Russian market were 607,8900 tonnes in January-May 2021, up by 33% year on year. Shipments of homopolymer PP and PP block copolymers increased, whereas deliveries of PP random copolymers decreased.
