SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Tianjin Dagu Chemical is planning a 10-day turnaround at its polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plant in the second half of March, a company source said on Monday.

The company will shut a 200,000 tonne/year line in March, and there are plans to shut another 200,000 tonne/year line at some time in April, the source added.

The facility, in the Tangsu district of Tianjin, China, has a total annual capacity of 800,000 tonnes/year.

The shutdown was not expected to have any significant impact on the market as current sentiment is poor in China, an industry source said.

Tianjin Dagu also operates a 200,000 dry metric tonne/year caustic soda plant at the facility.
