India’s OPaL and Reliance readying to start up new PE plants
The company’s initial plan was to start up the plants in September 2016.
The new plants are slated to produce HDPE grades such as injection, pipe, blow moulding and some LLDPE grades.
Capacities include a 340,000 tons/year HDPE unit and two 360,000 tons/year HDPE/LLDPE swing units at the site.
In the meantime, Reliance is planning to start commercial production at its new PE complex located in Jamnagar in March-April 2017.
The company’s initial plan was to start up the new complex in Q1 of 2016, which was then postponed to the first quarter of 2017.
The company’s new PE complex has a HDPE/LLDPE swing unit with a production capacity of 550,000 tons/year and a LDPE unit with a production capacity of 400,000 tons/year.
