Excuse to keep prices high, places like that have backup generators for such things.

although true generators that large take time to start, and i bet if they loose power for even a sec it can be enough to make a wafer unusable

In a real enterprise setup, it's not just a generator, it's also an entire room full of UPS batteries. You don't lose power for even a second. The batteries hold the load until the generator spins up (which is in our case, a turbine / jet engine). It's pretty neat stuff. You'd figure a major plant would have a set up like that, or better.

Any professional outfit would have a proper redundancy.

Indeed, when I was working for HP we had outages without us even knowing about till we could hear the generators running

The auto industry has sophisticated back ups as well, Think it's time Samsung is investigated.
