An Efficient Modular Solution for State-of-the-Art Semiconductor Chips 

Set on ushering the automobile industry into a cleaner, more efficient future, our client sought to build a $1B USD chip manufacturing plant from the ground up and Systecon has been selected to provide a Turnkey Modular Utility Solution. This custom designed, factory assembled, performance tested and delivered to this new site is cost efficient and saves valuable time, playing a vital role in this large-scale industrial client’s plans of production of semiconductor.  

 

Key figures : 

  •  200 million silicon carbide chips to be produced on this new plant 
  • 6-10% more energy efficiency in vehicles 
  • BRIGHT project Total Contract Value (
  • Modular Solution: $4.7M USD -
  • Additional Mechanical and HVAC: +$12M USD 

 

Problematisation and customer issues :

Producing a Small Product for a Large Global Impact

 

Building a chip manufacturing plant valued at $1B USD from scratch is no simple feat, even for a large-scale industry leader in semiconductor innovation. When the client developed plans for a fabrication facility in Marcy, NY set to produce a new form of silicone carbide semiconductors for electric automobiles, they required a partner with the capabilities to deliver contemporary cooling technology in time for a targeted 2022 opening, all while remaining in budget.  

 

Our response :

 Pre-fabrication for an Efficient Process 

 

Our modular method to factory construction relies on the pre-fabrication of key apparatuses. The modular solution approach allows for in-house time-saving prep work that results in the delivery of pre-constructed plant components designed in line with the customers unique project requirements. On this project, we are set to produce and transfer a system for chilled water pumping via a stainless-steel pump and a heat exchanger loop. 

 

Silicon carbide semiconductors will facilitate more efficient power technology in automobiles, allowing for 6-10% less battery usage when compared to predecessor silicon chips; however, these advancements in vehicle energy efficiency would not be possible without the successful delivery of cooling plant technology that is within budget and on time. 

 

 

Mobilised expertise :

Modular HVAC Solutions

 

Delivering preassembled components allows for the easy integration of the pivotal pieces of the manufacturing process into the new project setting.

 

Results : 

 

  • Systecon has completed their portion of work on this project in line with the client’s 2022 production start deadline and follows approximately $12M USD in work from sister company H.T. Lyons.
