TSMC Recently, it held an event at the construction site of its factory in the state of Arizona, and in this regard, the company has confirmed the construction of a second factory in this region. In this regard, TSMC has stated that the first factory in Arizona will start manufacturing 4nm nodes in 2024, and the second factory of the company is going to start working with a focus on manufacturing 3nm nodes in 2026.
The total investment for the construction of these two factories in the United States has been announced at 40 billion dollars, and in this regard, it has been said that this investment is one of the largest foreign and direct investments in the United States and the state of Arizona. In addition, more than 10,000 construction workers are said to be involved in the construction of these plants, and TSMC’s two plants in Arizona are expected to create nearly 10,000 high-paying technology jobs, including 4,500 directly for TSMC. They will work.
Total investment of 40 billion dollars and production capacity of 600,000 wafers per year
After the completion and finalization of the two factories, both of these production complexes are expected to produce more than 600,000 wafers per year, and the final value in this regard is estimated to be more than 40 billion dollars. In line with TSMC’s commitment to sustainable and environmentally friendly manufacturing, the company is set to build an on-site industrial water reclamation and used water recycling plant, which will help the Taiwanese company reduce water consumption to near zero.
