According to media reports, Taiwan’s Nan Ya Plastics is planning to shut its No 2 MEG unit, with a capacity of 360,000 tons/year, on February 10, 2017 due to a catalyst change.

The unit is expected to remain shut for a month.

Also, the company’s 720,000 ton/year No 4 MEG unit, which is the largest MEG unit at Mailiao, will reportedly undergo a planned maintenance in August 2017, which is expected to last for a month.

Sources also said that the company’s No 3 MEG plant with 360,000 ton/year capacity will be offline in September 2017 for a month for a planned maintenance.

The company’s No 1 MEG unit at the same site was already shut in November for a month for a catalyst change.

Nan Ya’s four MEG units have a combined production capacity of around 1.8 million ton/year and they are currently operating at 75-80% capacity, sources said.
