Major Korean-based polysilicon producer OCI Chemical is expanding its production of high-purity polysilicon to meet greater demand for P-type monocrystalline wafers used with PERC (Passivated Emitter Rear Cell) technology.
China-based polysilicon producer Daqo New Energy reported better than expected third quarter 2017 results, due to continued strong demand in China, coupled to a significant spike in polysilicon prices on supply chain shortages and annual facilities maintenance early execution.
China-based polysilicon producer Daqo New Energy is to increase its capacity at its Xinjiang plant by 7,000MT, which is intended to serve the high-purity needs of monocrystalline solar wafers and the expanding semiconductor sector.
China-based polysilicon producer Daqo New Energy has reported its best ever financial quarter in terms of cost structure, production volume and polysilicon quality as it fully ramped annual capacity to 18,000MT.
China-based polysilicon producer Daqo New Energy is responding to the need for higher specification polysilicon demand by increased adoption of high-efficiency mono wafers, notably being required for PERC (Passivated Emitter Rear Contact) solar cells.
China-based polysilicon producer Daqo New Energy said it had started production at its Phase 3A facility, bringing an extra 6,000MT of polysilicon capacity online and an annual production run rate of 18,000MT.
China-based polysilicon and wafer producer Daqo New Energy reported third quarter 2016 financial results that characterised the abrupt demand slowdown from PV manufacturers at the beginning of the quarter but cited a strong rebound in demand since October.
