Jostling for solar position

Big contracts are still up for grabs in the crowded polysilion market, but in the broader solar sector some players are showing signs of strain.

In the crowded polysilion sector, Centrotherm Photovoltaics announced last week that it has won a contract from Idea International Investment to help develop a $US1.1 billion polysilicon project in Saudi. The German company will provide the technical knowhow and basic engineering for the facility which will have a capacity to make 10,000 tonnes of the material. Production is to start by mid-2013. Idea may later expand upstream and make ingots, wafers and modules, it said on its website.
