LDK Solar has said that it started polysilicon production at its first 1,000MT plant on January 14th, 2009, 11 months after starting construction at its production complex in Xinyu City, China. A ceremony was held with the Governor of Jiangxi, Mr. Wu Xinxiong attending as well as the entire construction workforce.

“We are pleased to report that initial tests from the production run at our 1,000 MT plant indicate that the polysilicon produced is very high quality.
