Intel is spending $2 billion to build a new wafer fabrication facility in Leixlip, Ireland. Fab 24 will include 135,000 square feet of cleanroom in a total of more than a million square feet of space. The fab will build products on the 0.13 micron process.

Construction will begin immediately with first production expected in the second half of 2001. The new factory will initially manufacture on 200mm silicon wafers, but will be capable of moving at a later date to 300mm.

When the new fab is completed, Intel's cumulative investment in manufacturing facilities in Ireland will total approximately $4.5 billion. During construction, Fab 24 will be the largest single construction project in Ireland. The Leixlip site produces chipsets, Pentium III and Celeron processors. ®
