The No 1 MEG plant was shut on 20 June after a power disruption, the source said.
Nan Ya’s four MEG plants at Mailiao have a combined capacity of 1.8m tonnes/year, and are supplied with ethylene through pipelines from its parent company Formosa Petrochemical Corp (FPCC).
FPCC restarted its 1.03m tonne/year No 2 ethylene cracker in Mailiao on 30 June. It will keep its 1.2m tonne/year No 3 cracker and its 700,000 tonne/year No 1 cracker shut until 10 July and 5 August respectively, according to the source.
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.
