Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (TSMC) has signed an agreement with the municipal government of Nanjing, China to invest $3bn in building an advanced silicon wafer plant in Nanjing.

The new facility in Nanjing’s Pukou Economic Development Zone will have a capacity to manufacture 20,000 12-inch semiconductors, or wafers, per month.

The investment would also support the construction of a design service centre.

TSMC chairman Morris Chang said: “With our 12-inch fab and our design service center in Nanjing, we aim to provide closer support to customers as well as expand our business opportunities in China in step with the rapid growth of the Chinese semiconductor market over the last several years.

“We look forward to stronger collaboration with our customers to further expand our market share in China.”
