The company says the reason for this move is WACKER's decision to focus its solar activities exclusively on its core competency: the production of hyperpure polycrystalline silicon. SCHOTT Solar, on the other hand, concentrates on the downstream side of the photovoltaic value chain – the manufacturing of solar cells and modules.
‘Focusing on hyperpure polysilicon production provides an excellent base for our long-term competitiveness and profitability,’ says WACKER Group CEO Rudolf Staudigl. ‘In this field, we can play out our technology leadership and our strong market position with maximum impact.’
