IRVING, US/SHANGHAI, CHINA: Fluor Corporation was awarded a contract by Shaanxi Non-Ferrous Tian Hong REC Silicon Materials Co Ltd (TianREC) to provide detailed design services and technical support for its new polysilicon plant to be located in Yulin, Shaanxi Province, China. Fluor will book the contract for an undisclosed value in the first quarter of 2015.

The new plant, which will have an anticipated total investment of more than $1 billion, will use REC Silicon’s next generation fluidized bed reactor technology. It is expected to have a capacity to produce 18,000 metric tonne of granular polysilicon, an additional 1,000 metric tonne of Siemens polysilicon and 500 metric tonne of silane gas loading.

The award of the detailed design and technical support contract follows Fluor’s successful completion of the front-end engineering and design package project, and it builds upon the successful completion of several previous projects for REC Silicon.

“This project award reconfirms Fluor’s global leadership in the engineering, procurement and construction of polysilicon and silane gas processing plants and our ongoing positive capital project experience and relationship with REC Silicon. We look forward to supporting TianREC on this world-class, state-of-the-art facility,” said Ken Choudhary, President, Energy & Chemicals business in the Asia Pacific region, Fluor.
