Intel's renewed manufacturing push includes setting up a new factory in Europe. Now word hit the web about one possible location. Tom's Hardware writes Hubert Aiwanger, the Economy Minister of the German state of Bavaria, confirmed his state is in discussions with Intel.

Aiwanger says Bavarian officials have pitched an abandoned air base in Penzing-Landsberg near Munch to Intel:
Intel's actual plans for the fab are yet to take shape, but Bavarian officials have already proposed an abandoned air base in Penzing-Landsberg near Munich as a potential location for the fab.

"I strongly support this," Aiwanger said as per Reuters. "The possible location of a large international semiconductor manufacturer in Bavaria is an outstanding opportunity."
Intel is expected to make a final decision before the end of this year. Besides Germany, the chip giant is also considering locations in Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxemburg. To make the product achievable, Intel hopes to get about 8 billion EUR in government subsidies.
