SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s CPC Corp is expected to restart its 720,000 tonne/year No 6 cracker in Linyuan on 3 October after about three weeks of maintenance, a company source said on Wednesday.

The company’s Dalin residual fluid catalytic cracker (RFCC), which was shut since early August for a turnaround, is likely to resume operations in mid-October, the source said.

The restart schedule was pushed back by 5-7 days after maintenance work at the plant failed to meet the government’s regulations.

The RFCC in Dalin can produce 400,000-450,000 tonnes/year of propylene.

CPC’s 385,000 tonne/year No 4 cracker at Linyuan is expected to be taken off line in the week of 7 October for 90 days of maintenance.
