SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--South Korea’s Polymirae plans to shut part of its Yeosu polypropylene (PP) facility in October and November for maintenance, a company source said on Tuesday.

“The No 1 line will be shut from 7 October to 10 November, and the No 2 line will be shut from 17 October to end October,” the source said.

These two lines with a combined capacity of 300,000 tonnes/year resumed production on Monday after a brief outage due to feedstock issues, he said.

“The lines are operating at over 90% now,” he added.

The producer had no maintenance plans for its two other PP lines at Yeosu with a combined capacity of 300,000 tonnes/year this year, he said.
