SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Nippon Shokubai Indonesia plans to shut its 60,000 tonne/year crude acrylic acid (AA) plant located at Cilegon, West Java in June for its maintenance, a company source said on Thursday.

The company plans to shut the unit for approximately three weeks, the source said.

“The plant was recently shut for a short 10-day turnaround earlier in the year, and the maintenance in June usually takes longer,” the source added.

According to the source, Nippon Shokubai Indonesia usually shuts the unit twice a year for maintenance.
