The No 3 VCM line has been shut since an explosion occurred at the adjacent No 2 VCM line on 13 November 2011.
The company restarted its 250,000 tonne/year No 1 VCM line at the same site on 8 May and it is currently running at around 90-95%, the source said.
Tosoh is still mulling over the re-construction of its 550,000 tonne/year No 2 line, which was severely damaged in the explosion, according to the source.
