LONDON (ICIS news)--Iran Petrochemical Commercial Co (PCC) has started commercial production at its new Pardis II urea plant in Assaluyeh, Iran, a company official said on Monday.
“Our Pardis II urea line came onstream on Friday (16 July),” the official said.
The 1.1m tonne/year plant had initially started up on Friday 9 July, but encountered problems and was forced to stop.
PCC has been expecting to start the plant since mid-June but the start up took longer than expected, reportedly due to problems with utilities. Initial expectations had been that the unit would start in March/April this year.
The company’s associated 680,000 tonne/year ammonia plant started production in February 2010.
