In the past, CPC (1) (Central Processing Complex) An IBM mainframe that has two or more central processors (CPs) that share memory. It is the collection of processors, memory and I/O subsystems manufactured with a single serial number, typically all contained in one cabinet. had to rely on NKK Co. and MHI Co. of Japan to construct LNG receiving station in Yungan of Kaohsiung County. With the orders from China and India, CTCI proves it is the first in Taiwan capable of building LNG plants.
