Engineering: Polisilicon Plant Next Engineering Contract for Fluor in China
Fluor Corporation was awarded a contract by Shaanxi Non-Ferrous Tian Hong REC Silicon Materials (Tian REC) to provide detailed design services and technical support for its new polysilicon plant to be located in Yulin, Shaanxi Province, China.
Irving, Texas/USA; Shanghai/China – “This project award reconfirms Fluor’s global leadership in the engineering, procurement and construction of polysilicon and silane gas processing plants and our ongoing positive capital project experience and relationship with REC Silicon,” said Ken Choudhary, president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals business in the Asia Pacific region. “We look forward to supporting Tian REC on this world-class, state-of-the-art facility.”
Next Step after Successful Completion of the Front-End Engineering and Design
The new plant, which will have an anticipated total investment of more than $1 billion, will use REC Silicon's next generation fluidized bed reactor technology. It is expected to have a capacity to produce 18,000 metric tons of granular polysilicon, an additional 1,000 metric tons of Siemens polysilicon and 500 metric tons of silane gas loading.
The award of the detailed design and technical support contract follows Fluor’s successful completion of the front-end engineering and design package project, and it builds upon the successful completion of several previous projects for REC Silicon. Fluor’s Shanghai office will execute the project with support from offices in Aliso Viejo, Calif. and New Delhi. The Shanghai office has successfully completed other recent polysilicon projects in China.
