LDK Solar Completes Reengineering Process for Polysilicon Plant

LDK Solar Co., a Chinese solar-panel maker that restructured its offshore debt in December, completed a reengineering process for its polysilicon plant in Jiangxi province to cut production costs.

The Mahong plant produced trichlorosilane, the most critical material for polysilicon manufacturing, in its first run after the 440 million-yuan ($70 million) hydrochlorination reengineering process, LDK said today in a statement.

LDK said it will also raise the production capacity of polysilicon, the raw material used in most solar cells.
