Plants Need 2 to 3 Days to Restart Production 停電影響! 廠區關廠停工 2至3天才能復工

The power outage had the greatest impact on the Southern Taiwan, especially Kaohsiung's industrial zones. China Steel said that it is temporarily dispatching its inventory to minimize the impact.


The column of fire shot straight into the sky and lasted for a while. There was a power outage across Taiwan at the beginning of 9 a.m. on the 3rd. At that time, flames could be seen at many flare towers at CPC's Talin Plant and Linyuan Industrial Zone. CPC said that there were no reported industrial safety accidents. The Chinese National Federation of Industry said that due to the large scale of the power outage, backup power systems could not be activated in time. Although the power outage lasted for only one day, it had a great impact on the steel and petrochemical industries, and financial loss was difficult to estimate.

Ho Yu, Executive Director, CNFI: “The furnace needs to be slowly cooled below a level to be turned off. Steel and petrochemical furnaces are the same. The material inside the tubes also has to be dealt with, which impacts the production line and is a financial loss.”

This power outage also had a great impact on CPC's Linyuan Plant in Kaohsiung. Part of the plant is still shut down for maintenance. CPC said that it may take two to three days for the production line to return to normal.

Chang Jui-tsung, CNPC Spokesperson: “We were forced to shut down the furnace without warning. It will take a little longer to return to production. The needs of our midstream and downstream customers are also affected. So in general, it will probably take two or three days for us to get back to normal. ”

Tsao Mihn, President, Formosa Petrochemicals: “Our Mailiao Industrial Zone has its own power plant. Only our other plants in Linyuan and Dashe were affected.”

Power resumed at China Steel Corporation's Siaogang Plant at 4 p.m. on the 3rd, but production capacity was affected.

Wang Hsi-chin, CSC Spokesperson: “The production rhythm will of course suffer a bit. There will be some inventory adjustments and so on, to minimize the impact on shipments.”

CSC said that it was worried that after power was restored, there would be voltage instability. Thus, it was forced to suspend production for a day. In addition, the petrochemical industries, from upstream to downstream manufacturers, were all affected by the power outage. CSC conservatively estimated it may lose hundreds of millions NTD for shutting down production for a day.

 

 

 

火柱直衝天際,而且持續一段時間,3日上午9時許,全台大停電,當時高雄中油大林廠、林園工業區多處燃燒塔冒出熊熊火光,廠區表示並無傳出工安事故。全國工業總會表示,因停電規模大,導致備電系統無法及時啟用,雖然停電時間,只有一天,但對鋼鐵、石化業影響很大,損失難以估計。

工總常務理事何語指出:「爐要慢慢降溫一個水準以下才可以關電,鋼鐵的爐跟石化的爐都一樣,那後段的管內的東西,有的都還要再處理影響生產線,浪費到它整個產值。」

這次大停電,高雄中油林園廠影響也很大,部分廠區至今仍關廠停工檢修中。中油表示,產線恢復正常,恐怕還得等2到3天。

中油發言人張瑞宗說:「無預警的就被迫要緊急停爐,恢復到生產的時間就要花稍微比較長一點,中下游客戶的需求他們也有受到影響,所以整體來講要恢復正常,估計可能要2、3天。」

台塑化總經理曹明表示:「因為我麥寮工業區是自己有這個汽電共生,只是其它林園、大社這個地方有受到影響。」

而中鋼生產基地高雄小港廠區,則是直到3日下午4時才恢復供電 ,產能也受到影響。

中鋼發言人王錫欽說:「生產的節奏當然會受到一些影響,會有一些庫存等等的一些調度,讓所謂的出貨的影響減到最低。」

中鋼表示,擔心復電後,會出現電壓不穩情況,因此被迫停工一天。另外,石化產業從上游到中、下游廠商都遭停電波及,以中鋼為首,保守估計,一天產能,恐損失好幾億。
