ERJ staff report (LMH)
Jurong Island, Singapore – Zeon Corp. has said the start-up of its planned SSBR (solution styrene-butadiene rubber) plant on Jurong Island, Singapore, will be delayed to September 2013, due to unexpected site conditions.
The plant was due to come on stream in July 2013 with a capacity of 30 to 40 kt/year, with a second phase of the same capacity due by early 2016.
The Japanese company said the delay is due to unexpected site conditions encountered during the construction of a stretch of public service tunnels which support Zeon’s pipelines. Zeon Chemicals Singapore is “working closely with feedstock suppliers to minimise overall timeline delay to plant start-up,” Zeon said in an 8 April news release.
