Vietnam’s Nghi Son shutdown PP plant due to an unexpected technical issue
The plant has been operating at reduced rates over the past couple of weeks before the shutdown.
It is reported that Nghi Son Refinery and Petrochemical 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.
The 370,000 tons/year PP line was operating at reduced rates over the past couple of weeks before the shutdown.
On another note, Nghi Son Refinery and Petrochemical is planning a major overhaul at the PP unit in June 2021 and the entire complex would be shut in 2023 for maintenance.
