Dow: Maintenance Turnaround at MDI Facility
On May 5, 2007, Dow Polyurethanes, a business unit of The Dow Chemical Company, began work on a scheduled five-week turnaround at its MDI production facility in Stade, Germany, for routine maintenance and a government mandated process equipment inspection. The system maintenance and preparatory work will help to ensure that customers continue to receive a consistent and reliable supply of MDI from Dow.
This turnaround coincides with a scheduled maintenance turnaround at Dow’s aniline facility in Boehlen, Germany, which began on May 1 and is expected to last six weeks. Both of these turnarounds involve equipment repairs and replacements, reactors inspections and process adjustments, some of which are required by law every five years.
