LDK Solar Co. Ltd., a vertically integrated manufacturer of photovoltaic products, says it has achieved mechanical completion of its third 5,000 metric ton (MT) polysilicon train at its Mahong, China, polysilicon plant.
There are three 5,000 MT trains in the 15,000 MT Mahong polysilicon plant. Mechanical completion of this third train demonstrates that LDK Solar has successfully completed the plant's originally designed total polysilicon capacity of 15,000 MT per annum, the company says.
LDK expects that the third train will quickly ramp to reach full capacity production toward the end of the year. The company has now reached a total annual polysilicon production capacity of 17,000 MT, combining both Mahong and Xiacun polysilicon plants. Â
