LONDON (ICIS)--BASF will hold a four-week planned turnaround at its oxo-alcohols unit in Ludwigshafen, Germany, from mid-August to mid-September, a company source said on Tuesday.
The Ludwigshafen oxo-alcohols plant is the largest in Europe, with a nameplate capacity of 450,000 tonnes/year of n-butanol (NBA) and 50,000 tonnes/year of isobutanol (IBA), according to ICIS data.
The source confirmed that there should be no impact on deliveries to customers, as there are sufficient inventories to satisfy contractual obligations.
The precise dates of the planned turnaround were not disclosed.
