Taiwans Nan Ya starts 45-day safety checks at Chiayi plants

October 06/2010

SINGAPORE (ICIS) -- Nan Ya Plastics, an affiliate of Taiwans petrochemical giant Formosa Plastics, has launched on Wednesday a comprehensive safety checks of its facilities in Chiayi county after Sundays fire damaged its 48,000 tonne/year synthetic paper plant.


We have started to look at all the machinery in detail to see if there is anything that needs to be maintained or replaced, said company spokesperson David Tsou, adding that the whole process would take 45 days to complete.


Inspections would be conducted at Nan Yas 174,000 tonne/year polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipe plant, its 56,400 tonne/year PVC sheeting facility and its construction materials plant in the county in southern Taiwan. The plants would continue operating during the safety checks.


The move was meant to prevent a similar incident on 3 October, when a 17-hour blaze damaged Nan Yas synthetic paper plant and razed a warehouse.
