LDK Solar has completed the construction of its polysilicon plant located in Mahong, Jiangxi. The plant is a part of a hydrochlorination reengineering project and successfully produced trichlorosilane during its first production run on December 27, 2014.
Trichlorosilane is the most critical material for polysilicon manufacturing process. The trichlorosilane produced by Mahong Plant meets the national standard of the People’s Republic of China. Moreover, the hydrochlorination process is clean, environmentally friendly with lower manufacturing costs.
The hydrochlorination reengineering project was commenced early last year with new added investment of RMB 440 million. LDK Solar expects to rampup the polysilicon production to achieve lower production cost with hydrochlorination process.
