SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Philippine-based United Coconut Chemicals (Cocochem) is planning to restart its fatty alcohol plant on 1 September after completing renovation work, a company source said on Monday.
The 36,000 tonne per year plant was taken off line in the second week of April after a fire broke out at the unit, the source said.
The restart was initially planned for May but it was delayed by four months as major renovation had to be under taken at the plant, the source added.
“We had to renovate and fit the plant with new equipment after the fire destroyed most of it,” the source said, adding; “But it is good that we are right on track on to restart our operations on 1 September."To discuss issues facing the chemical industry go to ICIS connect
