SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Denka Singapore shut its 200,000 tonne/year polystyrene (PS) plant on 6 September after encountering some mechanical issues, a company source said on Friday.

The facility, located on Jurong Island, is expected to resume operations next week.

“The issue is limited in nature and will likely be resolved over the weekend,” the source added but did not give any details about the problem.

The sudden shutdown is expected to have little impact on the company’s ability to supply as it has some inventories on hand.

The other PS producer in Singapore is Total Petrochemicals.
