Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) has temporarily shut down its purified terephthalic acid (PTA) and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plants at its Dahej manufacturing unit in Bharuch district of Gujarat.
 
Due to lower release of dam water and the significantly increased salinity of water supply to RIL's Dahej manufacturing unit, there is shortage of the right quality of industrial water at Dahej complex.
 
“As a response, RIL is running on reduced capacity in some of the plants and has temporarily shut down its PTA and PET plants. RIL has 2.3 mmtpa of PTA capacity and 650 ktpa of PET capacity at its Dahej manufacturing complex,” the company said in an intimation sent to the stock exchanges.
 
RIL said it has initiated alternative arrangements for water and is closely monitoring the situation. It has also used the current situation to carry out planned maintenance and reliability activities. It is in a state of readiness to resume full supplies as soon as the water availability and water quality issues are resolved.
 
Meanwhile, RIL is ensuring a continued supply of PTA to the domestic market from its Hazira and Patalganga manufacturing complexes. (RKS)
