In August 2007, we started the construction of safe and environmentally friendly polysilicon production plants. Our plants are close to our ingot and wafer manufacturing facilities in Xinyu City of Jiangxi province in China. Production of solar and semiconductor grade virgin silicon feedstock will be primarily used for production of our monocrystalline and multicrystalline wafers to provide the highest-quality products to our customers around the globe.
Our polysilicon production plants consist of two factories. Ma Hong plant is located 7km east of LDK Solar's headquarters and with have an annualized production capacity of 15.000 MT (metric tons). Xia Cun plant is located 15km north of LDK Solar's headquarters with an annual installed capacity of 3.000MT.
