First propylene tank installed at Grupa Azoty PDH/PP plant at Police, Poland

January 27/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Grupa Azoty (Tarnow, Poland) says the first large propylene tank has been installed at its EUR1.5-billion (USD1.82 billion) propane dehydrogenation (PDH) and polypropylene (PP) project at Police, Poland, said Chemweek.

The tank, weighing 585 metric tons, was successfully transported to the construction site in a three-day operation, it says.

The tank will have a storage capacity for up to 1,400 metric tons of propylene and is the first of five that will be used to store product from the PDH unit, for onward supply to the adjacent PP plant. The first propylene tank was built at Gdynia shipyard in Poland, it says.

The scheduled start-up of the Polimery Police project was delayed by three months from the fourth quarter of 2022 into the first quarter of 2023 due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Grupa Azoty confirmed in November. Project construction was 32% complete in November, it said at the time. Hyundai Engineering is the general contractor. The complex at Police will include a 437,000-metric tons/year PDH plant, feeding a similar-capacity PP unit.

As per MRC, the scheduled startup of Grupa Azotys (Tarnow, Poland) flagship Polimery Police propane dehydrogenation (PDH) and polypropylene (PP) project at Police, Poland, has been delayed to the first quarter of 2023 due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic/

According to MRC's DataScope report, PP imports into Russia increased by 21% year on year to about 202,000 tonnes in the first eleven months of 2020. Propylene homopolymer (homopolymer PP) accounted for the main increase in imports.
