Dresden residents weigh in on TSMC’s European venture

Dresden residents weigh in on TSMC’s European venture

2024-06-10

TSMC has been expanding fast to meet global demand. Following ventures in the U.S. and Japan, the company’s board approved a plan to build in Dresden, Germany. Why was this location chosen, and what do the locals think? FTV brings you the latest from Dresden.

From Germany’s capital of Berlin, we took a two-hour drive to Dresden in eastern Germany.

TSMC’s first factory in Europe will be built in Dresden, the capital of Saxony. The fenced-in area you see is roughly 52.7 hectares. It’s right across from a factory of Bosch, an ESMC shareholder.

Last August, TSMC’s board committed NT$123.6 billion to ESMC, the European Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, which will be supported with an additional NT$174 billion in German subsidies. TSMC will hold a 70% stake, while auto parts supplier Bosch and chip firms Infineon and NXP will each hold 10%.

Dresden resident
No, I didn’t know TSMC was going to build a plant here. But I’m happy to hear it. The community will be internationalized.

Dresden resident
I had heard about it. This will create great job opportunities, all of which are related to computers, industry and even government administration. This is very important.

Dresden was chosen for several reasons. ESMC, which will focus on auto chips, is just a two-hour drive from Tesla’s factory in Berlin. BMW, Porsche and Volkswagen plants are only an hour away. Just 11 minutes away by car, the old winery town of Weinbohla was once the location of Bosch’s worker dormitories. Rumor has it that TSMC will build a community for its employees there.

Our understanding is that TSMC began recruiting for its German facility about half a year ago. It’s looking for talent including Taiwanese with German work experience. Some restaurant brands already present in TSMC’s Taiwan plants are already planning to come conduct site surveys. Together they will build an unprecedented European auto chip supply chain.

直擊! 台積電歐洲首站年底動工 德國廠預定地現況追蹤

2024-06-10

晶圓代工龍頭台積電,應客戶需求,到全球設廠!繼美國、日本後,去年董事會也拍版,將到德國薩克森邦、德勒斯登設廠,聚焦車用晶片代工,預計今年年底就會動工,而德國廠區選址考量哪些要點,當地民眾想法又是如何,帶您來看民視新聞團隊到當地的採訪。

從德國首都柏林出發,搭著兩個小時的車,來到位於德國東部的德勒斯登。

“台積電來歐洲設廠,地點就選在薩克森邦首府德勒斯登,圈地面積有大約52.7公頃,而確切位置就在股東博世的廠區對面”

去年八月台積電董事會拍版,預計斥資1236億,加上當地政府的1740億補貼,成立歐積電ESMC。台積電持有七成股份,汽車零件供應商博世、半導體供應商英飛凌、恩智浦各持10%。

“沒聽過(台積電設廠),我很樂意聽到,這裡將有一個國際化的社區”

[[當地居民]]
“有(聽說),這是提供一個很好的工作機會,這些全部都是跟電腦有關,還有工業領域,甚至政府行政部門都會需要,很重要”

會選在這裡不是沒原因,聚焦車用晶圓代工的歐積電,距離特斯拉柏林廠區,車程兩個小時,BMW、保時捷和福斯工廠車程也只要一個鐘頭,鄰近這裡車程11分鐘的酒莊老城溫布拉,也曾是博世公司的員工宿舍所在地,外界好奇,這裡有沒有可能成為台積村聚落。

[[民視記者 葉為襄]]
“根據了解台積電早在半年前,就已經開始招募德國廠區相關人才,選人才條件也包含,曾在德國工作的台灣人,而現在也已經有在台灣(廠區)進駐的,餐飲品牌即將要來這裡場勘,打造一個前所未見的,歐洲車用晶片供應鏈”
