DALU Group’s Polysilicon Production Plant
Main equipment and deliverables to be delivered to plant site in Hohhot ( China ) ahead of schedule
HOHHOT, CHINA – (June 10, 2008) – DALU Polysilicon Company, Ltd., a business unit of Dalu Group, has been assured by its equipment supplier that their work is ahead of schedule for Dalu Group's 18,000 metric ton per year (MTY) polysilicon plant that will produce both high-purity electronic grade (EG) and solar grade (SOG) polycrystalline silicon material.
Dalu Group met with its engineering, design, construction, and equipment suppliers in Atlanta to review progress of the poly plant project. Dalu Group was assured of receiving the equipment package's design deliverables by this month. Furthermore PPP Equipment Corporation (PPP-E) and Poly Plant Project, Inc. committed to Dalu Group that they would deliver the design information necessary to allow E ngineering Companies to continue their work ensuring the polysilicon production plant on schedule. Dalu has also been assured that construction of the poly-plant buildings will be completed before winter time comes in Inner Mongolia .
This is a major and important progress for Dalu's polysilicon plant and it means that the project has not been delayed. This positive news is welcomed by Kunical International Group, Ltd. ( USA ), and Space Energy ( Japan ) who, together with Dalu Group, signed a long-term polysilicon supply contract on April 2nd.
Dalu Group's Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) Reactors, STC-to-TCS Thermal Converters, associated power supplies, transformers, other key equipment and related process technology for their polysilicon production plant are being produced and supplied by PPP Equipment Corporation and Poly Plant Project, Inc., and will be delivered to Dalu's plant site by May 2009.
“PPP-E's world-class equipment package and PPP's process services will provide Dalu Group's plant with advanced, high productivity equipment that will enable our facility to produce EG & SOG polysilicon at the lowest possible operating cost,” said Tang Longhua (Jeffrey), Vice President of Dalu Group “We are very pleased to have PPP-E, PPP and other partners working closely together with us to design, engineer, build and equip our polysilicon production plant project.”
