Wacker Building $1.6 Billion U.S. Silicon Plant to Target Solar Customers
The plant in Cleveland, Tennessee will have an annual output capacity of 15,000 metric tons and is expected to be complete in late 2013, Munich-based Wacker said today in a statement.
Almost all of the output of the plant has been contractually secured for 2014. Wacker manufactured more than 30,000 metric tons of polysilicon in 2010 and is also expanding its Nuenchritz and Burghausen plants in Germany.
