The construction work and equipment installation at the coal-based methanol plant was completed in December last year, but the start-up date was postponed because of the cold weather in the first quarter in Xinjiang, the source added.
The exact date of the startup was not immediately known.
The company, a subsidiary of Xinjiang Guanghui Industry Investment Group, has also completed construction of downstream 800,000 tonnes/year di methyl ether (DME) unit at Hami in December 2011.
The source did not state when the DME unit will be brought on line.
