Century 3 Celebrates Milestone in GLOBALFOUNDRIES’s Fab Construction

Author: Century 3       Update: 2017-09-15

Century 3 celebrated the installation of steel truss of GLOBALFOUNDRIES’s 11th fab at Chengdu Hi-Tech Industrial Development West Zone on 14th September, 2017. The installation of steel truss, soon to be followed by installation of superstructure, marked a significant project milestone in what will become one of world’s largest and most advanced fabs. As GLOBALFOUNDRIES’s EPCM service provider, Century 3’s President Mr. Frank Hu and Project Director Mr. Liu Jianqiang attended the ceremony together with Chengdu government officials and GLOBALFOUNDRIES’s senior management.

Earlier this year, GLOBALFOUNDRIES signed an investment agreement with Chengdu government to build a world-class 300mm fab to meet China’s accelerating demand for high-end 22FDX®. The $100 million investment occupies an area of approximately 760,000 square meters. It is expected to provide support system necessary to help China’s chip designers take full advantage of the technology. The Fab11 is expected to be put into operation at the end of 2018.

“This is a large-scale fab rare to be found worldwide.” Said Mr. Frank Hu, who has visited and studied several wafer plants in Singapore. “Apart from the main factory, Fab11 has numerous other types of buildings such as Class 100 clean room, dangerous goods warehouse, substation etc., which all have demanding building standards and raise challenges in construction management.”

Century 3’s has a long tradition of delivering big international wafer projects to international clients such as SanDisk, Micron, Applied Materials, Texas Instruments etc. Our project management expertise, understanding of the process equipment as well as demonstrable track record of safely delivering major complex facilities to the highest international standards will help GLOBALFOUNDRIES realize its goal of becoming the regional center of excellence for advanced semiconductor design and manufacturing.
