MOSCOW (ICIS)--Russia-based Titan group will start operation of a new 180,000 tonne/year polypropylene (PP) plant in November, the company's chairman said on Monday.

The new plant, under the name PolyOm, is due to start receiving feedstock supplies in the second half of October and begin operation in November, Mikhail Sutyaginsky was quoted as saying in remarks released on Monday.

The plant, based in Omsk, Western Siberia, was initially expected onstream by the end of 2006, but has been subject to severe delays because of financing issues.

In June 2012, the Omsk regional government voiced expectations that the PP plant would start operation in July.
