Hsinchu, Taiwan, R.O.C. – TSMC (TWSE: 2330, NYSE: TSM) today submitted an application to the Investment Commission of Taiwan’s Ministry of Economic Affairs for an investment project to build a wholly-owned 12-inch wafer manufacturing facility and a design service center in Nanjing, China.

The planned capacity of the facility is 20,000 12-inch wafers per month , and would be scheduled to begin volume production of 16nm process technology in the second half of 2018. The design service center is aimed at establishing TSMC’s design ecosystem in China. TSMC will commence the investment project upon receiving the approval from the Investment Commission.
