SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s Nan Ya Plastics shut down its 360,000 tonne/year No 1 monoethylene glycol (MEG) unit in Mailiao on Thursday for a turnaround, a company source said.

“The No 1 plant was shut down this morning, for 35-45 days [of] maintenance,” the source said.

The company, which has four MEG plants with a combined capacity of 1.8m tonnes/year, will shut down another unit “very soon”, the source added.

Nan Ya is expected to shut two MEG plants for turnaround this week.

The company's No 2 and No 3 units can each produce 360,000 tonnes/year of MEG, while its No 4 unit is the biggest, with a 720,000 tonne/year capacity.
