LDK Solar Awards Equipment Contract To Applied Materials

LDK Solar Co. Ltd. has awarded a $220 million contract to Applied Materials Inc. to provide precision wafering systems to support its next phase of production expansion.

The systems are scheduled to begin shipping to LDK Solar's facility in Xinyu, China, in early 2009, and will support the company's plans to expand to 3.2 GW of annualized wafer capacity in 2010.

‘We believe that Applied's state-of-the-art wafering systems, including its HCT wire saws and squarers, are the best choice to help us scale up capacity to meet the expanding global demand for wafers,’ says Xiaofeng Peng, chairman and CEO of LDK Solar.
