Fluor completes LDK’s China polysilicon plant construction

SHANGHAI, CHINA/IRVING, US: Fluor Corporation has completed construction for LDK Solar’s polysilicon plant in Xinyu City, China, one of the largest such production facility in the world. Fluor provided engineering, procurement and construction management services for the plant, which produces solar-grade silicon for the photovoltaic industry.

The first of the three production lines was finished in record time to allow LDK Solar to begin initial production of photovoltaic polycrystalline silicon less than 24 months after the start of construction. Construction of the second line was completed in July 2011 with the third and final line completed in late 2011, which met LDK’s schedule and budget requirements.

“Fluor’s project execution was exemplary and the team responded to changing circumstances in a timely and professional manner while exhibiting the discipline to keep the project on schedule. The project featured a first-class safety record. Fluor also designed first rate safety features into the polysilicon plant and has continuously transferred knowledge and competency to the benefit of the LDK organization,” said Goran Bye, President and CEO, LDK Silicon & Chemical Technology.
