The island of Taiwan has experienced two earthquakes in the past two days, ranging in magnitude from 5.9 to 6.8 on the Richter scale. The epicenters are located in the eastern and southeastern parts of the island, respectively, and although bridges and roads were destroyed in their immediate vicinity, the infrastructure associated with the production of semiconductor products was not damaged. Local businesses can continue to produce it without interruption.
Po words Chief Financial Officer of UMC Chi-tung Liu (Chi-tung Liu), some of the production lines of this company were automatically turned off at the time of the tremors, but this morning they returned to normal operation. As a rule, such incidents can lead to the fact that some of the processed products become unsuitable for further use, but so far manufacturers are in no hurry to report damage.
Representatives of the Ministry of Economy of Taiwan, located in Hsinchu, Taichung and Tainan, specialized technology parks were not particularly affected. The water and electricity supply to the relevant industries did not stop either, which is critical for maintaining their continuous operation. TSMC, Micron Taiwan, Siliconware and AUO reported no earthquake damage. After a devastating natural disaster in 1999, the Taiwanese authorities impose special seismic requirements on the objects under construction on the island – they must withstand tremors of magnitude up to 6 on the Richter scale.
