Baoding Yingli to enter polysilicon manufacturing industry


Yingli Group Co. Ltd. has announced its intention to enter the realm of
polysilicon manufacturing. Yingli Group expects to establish a green
field project, primarily using Siemens methodology, to manufacture
3,000 metric tons of polysilicon annually in Baoding, China.

The vertically integrated PV module manufacturer expects the venture to be funded by Yingli Group itself in conjunction with several minority equity holders. While the plan is being undertaken primarily to benefit Yingli Green Energy’s polysilicon requirements, the Yingli Group affiliate is not expected to contribute financially to the project.

“This project has been named one of the significant industry strategic projects supported by Hebei Province,” said Mr. Liansheng Miao, Chairman of Yingli Group.
“With the core technical force and engineers coming from Europe and the United States with extensive industry experience, I am optimistic about the success of this project.”
