Mitsui Chemicals Kashima plant to start in 2 months after repair work


TOKYO, JAPAN: Mitsui Chemicals Group continues to assess its plants, following the earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011. In restarting operations at the company’s works, Mitsui continues to investigate the effects of the ongoing serious power shortage and continues its extensive power reduction efforts to save power.

At its Kashima Works (Kamisu City, Ibaraki Prefecture), repair work is underway at some facilities. Following completion of these repairs, scheduled regular maintenance will be conducted from mid May to late June. Operations will be resumed after completion of scheduled regular maintenance and as necessary raw materials become available. Operations have commenced at all facilities with exceptions of some products.
