SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--China’s Yisheng Petrochemical shut down its No 2 650,000 tonne/year purified terephthalic (PTA) line at Ningbo, eastern Zhejiang province, on 11 July due to a mechanical snag, a company source said on Tuesday.

“The plant was shut down yesterday, and will restart three or four days later after resolving the problem,” the source told ICIS.

Meanwhile, the company’s No 1 660,000 tonne/year PTA line at the same site was running at around full capacity and was not affected by the outage, the source added.

Yisheng had fully started up its new PTA plant last week, according to an earlier report from ICIS. It has a total nameplate capacity of 2m tonnes/year.

Yisheng operates another PTA plant at Dalian, in northeastern China, which has a nameplate capacity of 1.5m tonnes/year.
