SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Australia’s Coogee Energy will shut its 56,000 tonne/year methanol plant at Laverton in Melbourne on 20 April for 10 days of maintenance, a company source said on Thursday.
The plant is running at 140%, above its nameplate capacity, because of strong demand, added the source.
Coogee Energy supplies the output from its plant via dedicated pipelines mainly to customers in the eastern states of Australia, for the production of formaldehyde, according to the company’s website.
The company also supplies methanol to some specialised end-users and retailers via road tankers both from its plant in Laverton and from its off-site storage facility in Botany at New South Wales, Australia.
