Mar '13
Taiwan-based Formosa Chemical and Fibre Corp (FCFC) plans to undertake maintenance turnaround at its line No.1 of its aromatics plant in March 2013.
“The line No.1 of our aromatics plant will undergo a scheduled maintenance turnaround by the end of March 2013 and is expected to remain off stream for a period of around one month,” a company official informed fibre2fashion.
On quizzed about maintenance turnarounds at other lines, he replied by saying that there were no plans for a turnaround at line No. 2 and No.3.
The company operates three aromatic lines at the plant. Line No.1 has a PX production capacity of 260,000 mt/year, Benzene capacity of 250,000 mt/year and OX capacity of 120,000 mt/year.
