MOSCOW (MRC) -- Nghi Son Refinery and Petrochemical (NSRP) has restarted its polypropylene (PP) in central Vietnam on 13 April 2021 after a two-week turnaround due to a technical issue, according to CommoPlast.

The plant with an annual capacity of 370,000 tons/year of PP was shut on 30 March, 2021, and was  initially estimated to remain off-line for three weeks.

As MRC wrote oreviously, in the third week of September 2020, NSRP restarted its PP unit in Vietnam following a 10 days unscheduled shutdown starting 7 September 2020 due to a persistent technical issue.
