LDK Solar’s second 5000MT train in its 15,000MT polysilicon plant has now achieved mechanical completion and will begin ramping production. The first train is operating at capacity in full closed-loop mode and is on track to produce at the annualized capacity of 5000MT.
“This achievement confirms the design basis of our polysilicon plants. Our experience in ramping the first 5000MT train will enable us to more quickly ramp the second 5000MT train to full production capacity,” stated Xiaofeng Peng, chairman and CEO of LDK Solar. “The combined annualized production capacity of 10,000MT for our first and second trains will provide economies of scale with low power consumption through 48 rod reactors and continue to drive down production cost. We look forward to continuing to expand our polysilicon output throughout the year.”
