Another Plant Shutdown

Today, I was informed that we have to stop another plant that I'm in charge of for maintenance 3 months earlier than the exact schedule. The reason was simply because it's going to be Chinese New Year festive season which means less crude palm oil (CPO) will be received due to tankers are not allowed to be on the road. At the same time, the brutal rainy season since last December created flood in most territories in Johor which gave direct impact to the supply of CPO. A lot of palm oil plantations were flooded and at the same time people cannot harvest the palm oil.

So there goes away another public holiday!!! Few weeks ago I could not enjoy the New Year and Hari Raya Haj because of a plant shutdown too...And the accident... Well, this is something to be expected if we work in this kind of industry.
