The two plants were shut on 20 June after a power disruption, and were only restarted on 26 June because of feedstock pipeline issues, the source said.
The company’s 360,000 tonne/year No 1 MEG plant, which was also shut because of the power disruption, will remain shut until Formosa Petrochemical restarts its ethylene crackers in early July, the source added.
Nan Ya’s 720,000 tonne/year No 4 MEG plant in Mailiao, which was shut on 4 June for a turnaround, is expected to be restarted in the middle of July.
