Silicor Materials Signs Agreements For Icelandic Manufacturing Plant


California-based Silicor Materials Inc. has signed port and land agreements with Faxafloahafnir SF, which will support logistics and shipping services to Silicor's commercial-scale plant in Grundartangi, Iceland.

The three agreements will allow Silicor to take advantage of the site's proximity to large amounts of aluminum and metallurgical-grade silicon in the area, both of which are materials needed for the company's unique metallurgical production process. Silicor's plant is expected to yield up to 19,000 metric tons of solar silicon each year for the global solar market.

‘The world-class shipping and logistics infrastructure offered by Faxafloahafnir SF allows us to keep costs low and deliver product as quickly and efficiently as possible to customers,’ says Theresa Jester, Silicor's CEO.
