Samsung: Another power outage, but no damage

September 21, 2007 – Samsung Electronics says another “brief” power outage at its K2 production line in its Giheung facility lasted about half a minute, but there was no damage. An automatic system switched on immediately and all lines continued operating normally, a spokesperson told the Korea Times, calling the glitch “a minor technical problem.”

A more severe blackout in early August knocked out six lines at the K2 operation (lines 6, 7, 8, 9, 14, and S), ultimately denting NAND flash output by about 10% and costing the company abut 40 billion won (US ~$43M), the paper noted.
