The delays of setting up infrastructure around the Globalfoundries fab 8 semiconductor manufacturing facility may postpone the opening of the factory that costs $4.6 billion and slowdown plans of numerous high-tech companies.

The manufacturing facility needs primary as well as secondary access roads, water and power lines. The secondary set of infrastructure is currently not being built as the destiny of the technology park where fab 8 is located is unclear. At present the state of New York wants to take over the Luther Forest Technology Campus Economic Development Corp. since the latter could not meet certain schedules.

"We have very serious concerns about meeting our timelines to bring the fab up on time. It’s been an issue for a long time," said Travis Bullard, a spokesperson for Globalfoundries, in an interview with The Saratogian news-paper.

The total facility, including cleanroom support infrastructure and office space, includes more than 1.3 million square feet of space and is expected to come online in 2012 with volume production targeted for early 2013. The total output of the fab is projected to be approximately 60 thousand wafers per month once fully ramped.
