Corporation has officially stated that it has been awarded the contract
for engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM)
services by LDK Solar for its under-construction $1 billion, 15,000MT
polysilicon plant in Xinyu City, Jiangxi, China.
“Fluor and LDK Solar are dedicated to bringing this fast-track project online to meet the increasing worldwide demand for polysilicon-based renewable energy sources,” said David Seaton, President of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals Group. “With the increasing importance of the China market for Fluor’s energy & chemicals clients, we expect this world-class, state-of-the-art polysilicon facility to set the stage to meet this growing demand.”
“We are pleased that Fluor will work with us to achieve high-quality construction management standards during this significant endeavor. Our partnership with a leading EPCM service provider reiterates our commitment to remaining on schedule and within budget in completing this polysilicon plant,” said Xiaofeng Peng, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, LDK Solar.
Fluor’s scope of work includes full EPCM services using a design-build approach, which also includes the trichlorosilane plant, chemical vapor deposition reactors, converters, and associated utilities, offsites and infrastructure. The new facility will be located adjacent to LDK Solar’s existing solar wafer manufacturing facilities at its Xinyu City plant, and is expected to produce up to 15,000 metric tons per year of polysilicon and 90,000 metric tons per year of trichlorosilane.
