      RusVinyl starts construction of PVC plant

      A corner stone laying ceremony has been held on the construction site of SolVin and Sibur’s joint venture RusVinyl, Sibur reported on July 12. According to Sibur, the new facility in the Kstovo district of the Nizhny Novgorod region is to be Russia’s largest integrated PVC plant. Belgium’s Prime Minister Yves Leterme, Deputy Governor of Nizhny Novgorod Vladimir Ivanov, Belgian Ambassador to Russia Guy Trouveroy, President of SIBUR Dmitry Konov, Chairman of Solvay’s Executive Committee Christian Jourquin, Chairman of SolVin’s Board of Directors Jacques van Rijckevorsel, and the CEO of RusVinyl, Jean-Louis Plumecocq took part in the ceremony.

      The new complex is scheduled to come online in 2013. Its future production capacity is estimated at 330,000 tonnes of PVC and 235,000 tonnes of caustic soda per year. Given that PVC consumption in Russia continues to grow at the same rate and pending that salt deposits in the Nizhny Novgorod region continue to be developed in sufficient quantities, the company may decide to increase the plant’s output capacity to 500,000 tpa. The new plant will use a PVC manufacturing technology from SolVin. The Technip international engineering group is responsible for the engineering design, equipment supply and construction management. SolVin is a joint venture between Solvay (75%) and BASF (25%).
