After the Hualien earthquake, Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., Ltd. immediately resumed work and was praised by the media for its earthquake resistance.

Taiwan’s strongest earthquake in 25 years with a magnitude of 7.2 occurred yesterdayEarthquake,ButWafermanufacturing giantTSMCNot only was there no major damage, but employees returned to work within hours. US media reported that this shows how TSMC has learned from past experience to improve its earthquake resistance.

TSMC, whose customers include Apple and artificial intelligence darling Nvidia, told Fortune that it evacuated some of its production line workers as a precaution after the earthquake and aftershocks, and temporarily suspended work.

TSMC later reported that a “small number” of production equipment had been damaged and would continue to inspect to confirm all damage. However, according to TSMC, 10 hours after the earthquake, its equipment recovery rate reached more than 70%, and all key machines, including all extreme ultraviolet (EUV) exposure machines, were not damaged.

TSMC said this evening that the recovery rate of its wafer fab equipment has exceeded 80%, and newly built wafer fabs such as Wafer 18 are expected to be fully restored tonight.

TSMC’s limited damage this time shows that it has experience in responding flexibly to natural disasters. According to the Taiwan Central Meteorological Administration, approximately 2,200 earthquakes occur each year in Taiwan, of which more than 200 are felt. Faced with this situation, TSMC had to make necessary changes in its operating methods.

Mark Williams, chief Asia economist at Capital Economics, said in a client note issued yesterday: “The earthquake is a huge challenge for companies that perform the most sophisticated manufacturing processes in any industry. It’s a challenge that Taiwan’s chip makers are facing.” Have been.” Grow.”

On February 6, 2016, a 6.6 magnitude earthquake struck TSMC’s Nanke factory. Later, TSMC emphasized that the impact on shipments in the first quarter of that year was no more than 1%. In fact, shipments in the current quarter were down only 1.8% compared to the previous quarter.

After the earthquake, TSMC strengthened the diagonal roof supports and added anti-slip sheets to the tower-type wafer storage equipment to prevent slipping.

In early 1999, after the September 21 earthquake, TSMC increased the seismic resistance coefficient of the main structure of the new factory building by 25% compared with the existing regulations. By 2015, TSMC deployed another earthquake early warning system.
