SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--Styrindo Mono has restarted its No 2 styrene monomer (SM) plant in Merak, Indonesia, after it was forced to shut the unit due to a power outage, a source from the company said on Thursday.
“We have restarted the No 2 plant and will wait for it to be stabilised before we restart the other,” the sources said.
Both of Styrindo Mono’s SM plants were shut on Wednesday due to a power outage which affected the whole city.
The company’s 250,000 tonne/year No2 SM unit was restarted on Tuesday after a turnaround and the 100,000 tonne/year No1 SM unit was scheduled to be shut for maintenance in late June.
