SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s Nan Ya Plastics has resumed operations at its monoethylene glycol (MEG) units in Mailiao which were shutdown as a precaution after a quake, a company source said on Friday.

The company’s 360,000 tonne/year No 1 and 360,000 tonne/year No 2 MEG unit were restarted earlier in the day and are currently running at 70% capacity, the source said.

The company shut its No 2, No 3 and No 4 MEG units in Mailiao on 27 September as a safety precaution after a quake struck Taiwan.

Nan Ya subsequently restarted the No 3 unit on the same day and the 720,000 tonne/year No 4 unit on 28 September, the source said.

The No 1 unit was under shutdown for planned 7-10 days of maintenance before the incident.
