AMG Advanced Metallurgical Group N.V. says that its 50.5% subsidiary Timminco Limited, through its wholly owned subsidiary Becancour Silicon Inc. (BSI), has formed a supply relationship with Canadian Solar Inc. (CSI).
CSI is expected to purchase up to 5,000 metric tons of solar-grade silicon through 2011 at a price substantially less than the current contract prices for polysilicon. BSI delivered 16 metric tons of solar grade silicon in 2007 and expects to deliver 450-500 metric tons to CSI this year.
‘We are very happy to announce our relationship with CSI as a strategic partner in the development of our solar-grade silicon,’ says Rene Boisvert, president and CEO of BSI. ‘We are pleased to have achieved the necessary milestones to permit commercialization by CSI of their use of our product.’
