SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Chongqing Wintinwe Chlor-alkali Chemical shut its 100,000 tonne/year caustic soda unit in Chongqing municipality, southwest China, on 18 February for 10 days of scheduled maintenance, a company source said on Monday.
The shutdown is expected to result in a caustic soda output loss of about 2,700 tonnes in February compared with the output in January, according to the source.
The company was running the plant at 100% of capacity before the maintenance shutdown, the source said.
The producer offered its 50% liquid caustic soda cargoes at yuan (CNY) 2,900/dmt ($465/dmt) EXW (ex-works) on 18 February, unchanged from its offers before the shutdown, added the source.
