SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--South Korea’s Hanwha Chemical will partially shut its 550,000 tonne/year caustic soda plant in Yeosu for a five-day scheduled turnaround starting 29 March, a source close to the company said on Thursday.

The turnaround, which involves one of the plant’s two production lines, will end on 3 April and could lead to a production loss of around 6,000 tonnes, the source said.

The plant’s other production line underwent a turnaround from 17-24 February.

Hanwha also runs a 240,000 tonne/year caustic soda plant in Ulsan, which will undergo a turnaround only in the second half of the year, the source said.
