SDK suspends operations at Oita ethylene plant

Showa Denko K.K. (SDK) announces that it will temporarily suspend operations at its ethylene plant at the Oita Complex.

The two-line ethylene plant has total production capacity for approximately 695,000 tons / year (in years without shutdown maintenance). As for the 200,000 tons / year line, we stopped production on March 7 to conduct periodic maintenance of cracking furnaces until March 29. We also stopped production at the other line (495,000 tons / year) on March 15 to conduct cleaning of cracking furnaces until March 21.

On March 18, a trouble occurred in equipment for the cooling process. After a series of inspection, we confirmed today that we need to repair the equipment.

Although we initially planned to fully restart ethylene production on March 30, we have decided to postpone the time of restart due to the need of the repair. At this moment, we expect to restart production by the end of May.
