SINGAPORE (CNI)—Teijin Polycarbonate is targeting a mid-October restart for its three polycarbonate (PC) lines at Jurong Island, Singapore, a company source told CNI on Tuesday.
The PC lines, with a combined capacity 130 000 tonne/year, were shut down for a scheduled maintenance turnaround on 1 October.
The turnaround is fortuitously timed for the company, as one of its carbon monoxide (CO) suppliers, Syngas, has shut down its gas plant for repairs. The Syngas shutdown is expected to last for ten days.
Teijin intends to restart its three lines in phases with CO supplies from a second supplier, Singapore Oxygen Air Liquide (SOXAL).
