SINGAPORE (ICIS)--PVC Malaysia plans to restart its 150,000 tonne/year polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plant at Kerteh in Terengganu state on 23 September, a company source said on Wednesday.

The unit has been shut since 24 August for a maintenance turnaround.  

The PVC plant shutdown coincides with a turnaround at an upstream vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) facility operated by Vinyl Chloride Malaysia (VCM SB) at the site.

VCM SB plans to restart the VCM unit on 1 October.

PVC Malaysia and VCM SB are subsidiaries of Malaysia’s state-owned energy firm PETRONAS.
