The restart schedule has been put off by one month as the company is conducting additional engineering work at the unit, the source said.
The unit was shut on 7 September for a planned 30-40 days of turnaround, in compliance with a government directive on safety checks at the plants in Mailiao.
The shutdown at No 1 unit will last for around 40-45 days, he said.
