CPC Corp, Taiwan (台灣中油) acting chairman Yang Wei-fu (楊偉甫) yesterday said that the firm tomorrow is to propose a list of punishments over the Aug. 15 blackouts based on a report by the Executive Yuan.
“The list might involve not only frontline operators, but also management personnel,” said Yang, who is vice minister of economic affairs.
“It is a necessary move to meet the public’s expectations,” he told a news conference at the ministry in Taipei.
CPC mistakenly suspended supply to a gas-fired power plant in Taoyuan’s Datan Township (大潭) for two minutes on the evening of Aug. 15 as a contractor — Lumax International Corp (巨路國際) — was replacing power supply components at a metering station. [FULL STORY]
