Reliance Industries Shuts Down Some Dahej Plant Units
New Delhi: Reliance Industries Ltd on Tuesday said it has shut down some units of its Dahej petrochemical plant in Gujarat following water shortage.

"Due to lower release of dam water and the significantly increased salinity of water supply to RIL's Dahej manufacturing complex, there is shortage of the right quality of industrial water at Dahej complex," it said in a stock exchange filing.

As a result, RIL is running on reduced capacity in some of the plants and has temporarily shut down its PTA and PET plants.

The company has 2.3 million tons per annum of PTA capacity and 650,000 tons a year of PET capacity at its Dahej manufacturing complex.

"RIL 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 said.

The company said it is in a state of readiness to resume full supplies as soon as the water availability and water quality issues are resolved.

"RIL is ensuring a continued supply of PTA to the domestic market from its Hazira and Patalganga manufacturing complexes," the filing said.
