Silicor Materials, Inc. Key Developments

Silicor Materials, AM Technical Solutions Close $8.9 Million Project Management Contract

Silicor Materials, Inc. announced the signing of a contract with AM Technical Solutions (AMTS) - a construction and project management and facility solutions firm for the high tech markets - for the project management of Silicor's first commercial-scale plant in Grundartangi, Iceland. The project is expected to break ground before the end of 2016 and be fully operational by 2019. The companies will work together over the next 36 months to complete the 121,000 square-meter production facility, which will supply photovoltaic (PV) cell and module manufacturers around the world with at least 19,000 metric tons of solar silicon each year. Under the terms of the agreement, worth more than USD 8.9 million, AMTS is responsible for overseeing and executing the project's strict timeline and controlling the budget throughout the construction process. Silicor's solar silicon is a lower-cost, environmentally friendly alternative to traditional polysilicon, allowing manufacturers to reduce production costs with no impact to product performance or quality. The material, which currently powers more than 20 million PV cells around the world, is produced through a proprietary metals-based process that consumes significantly less energy than traditional methods.

Silicor Materials Inc Opens its First Polysilicon Manufacturing Facility in Iceland

Silicor Materials Inc. will open its first polysilicon manufacturing facility in Iceland due to the country's low power costs, substantial government support for renewable energy and its existing free-trade agreement with China, but would consider a second facility in the USA later down the line. The polysilicon facility in Grundartangi is expected to create 450 high-paying manufacturing jobs. It will have an initial annual production capacity of 16,000 tonnes, with plans to increase that to 19,000 tonnes within a few months of operation. The facility will likely take two years to and one additional year for full.
