LONDON (ICIS)--A three-week turnaround will be held in October at the Oxochimie oxo-alcohols plant in Lavera, France, a source at Arkema said on Wednesday.
France’s Arkema is a joint venture partner in Oxochimie, along with Switzerland-headquartered INEOS Oxide.
The Oxochimie complex has a nameplate capacity of 150,000 tonnes/year of 2-ethylhexanol (2-EH), 150,000 tonnes/year of n-butanol (NBA) and 30,000 tonnes/year of isobutanol (IBA), according to ICIS data.
The turnaround will allow for a boiler change at the plant, the Arkema source said, adding that inventories will be built up ahead of the shutdown.
A source at INEOS Oxide had previously noted that a turnaround would take place in October.
