LONDON (ICIS)--Vencorex’s toluene di-isocyanate (TDI) production at its Le-Pont-de-Claix site in France is due to undergo a major maintenance turnaround in April, said a company source on Monday.

The maintenance work is expected to start in-mid April and last for around four to five weeks, said the company source, who added that it expected contracts to be covered during this period.

The French TDI facility has a nameplate capacity of 125,000 tonnes/year, according to the company source.

Vencorex is a joint venture between Thailand-based petrochemical and refining company PTT Global Chemical and Sweden-based producer Perstorp Group.
