According to the plant, it witnessed
a 52% increase in sales, a 41% increase in year-on-year operating profit and a record
for the production of 386,000 tons of polyethylene at a 300,000-ton unit.
Amir Hossein Bahreini said HDPE
and LDPE units of the plant operated with 300,000 tons per year of installed
capacity but yielded 386,000 and 370,000 tons of products during the previous Iranian
calendar year which ended on March 19.
He said a world record for
continuous uninterrupted production at the light density polyethylene unit for
201 consecutive days was set at the plant, besides a record for uninterrupted
production of heavy and medium density polyethylene for 604 days.
The successes were made possible
by removing production bottlenecks in the olefin unit of the plant, he said.
Bahreini added: "The
implementation phase of the value-creating project of construction of a new
polyethylene unit with an annual capacity of 300,000 tons will begin this year
and will be put into operation in the second half of 1401 (which begins on
March 21 2022)."
