He was able to convince himself of this at an on-site meeting this week, and he is happy to support such a request in Pensing City Council and Landsberg City Council. “We are in close contact with the company and will work for this area and the project,” Ivanger said. “The possible settlement of a large international semiconductor manufacturer in Bavaria is a great opportunity for Bavaria as a place of business.”
The project has an investment of 15 billion euros. Intel already runs a chip factory in Ireland and is planning another location in Europe but expects billions in funding. The former air base between Pensberg and Landsburg am Lake is one of the many possible locations. A decision is expected in the second half of the year.

Bosch recently opened a new semiconductor plant in Dresden. Read more about it here.
