Govt to help Formosa recruit personnel for its naphtha cracker
Aug '11
Taiwan's Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) has responded to the Formosa Plastics Group's (FPG's) complaint of unavailability of sufficient number of skilled personnel to undertake inspection and maintenance, including the replacement of pipeline work at its naphtha cracking complex.

The MOEA has extended helping hand to FPG and said it would assist the company to obtain the skilled labour needed to carry out inspections and maintenance of its petrochemical plants. However, priority would be given to domestic workers and experts while hiring, Mr. Shih Yen-shiang, Minister of Economic Affairs said.

The FPG's naptha cracker complex in Yunlin County's Mailiao has been hit by seven fire incidents during the last 12 months. To prevent further fire accidents, the government has asked the FPG to suspend operations, in stages, at all of its 66 plants in the naphtha cracker complex within a year and conduct their inspection and maintenance.

In response, the FPG had said that the work requires a large number of skilled personnel, which will be a great challenge and it would be required to hire them from overseas.
