Under the order, GT Solar will supply Powertec with a complete suite of its polysilicon production equipment and technology, including SDR 400 reactors, hydrochlorination, filament and product processing equipment.
The equipment will be installed in Powertecs new polysilicon facility, which is expected to begin production in 2012.
"Our goal is to become a leading supplier of polysilicon to support the growth of the world photovoltaics industry," said Scott Kou, chief executive officer of Powertec Energy Corporation. "To ensure a low-risk and rapid startup of our new production facility, we wanted proven technology that could deliver high quality material for the lowest polysilicon production costs."
