China: GCL-Poly to supply modules for 310 MW plant

GCL-Poly Energy Holdings will supply the solar modules for the plant and they will be assembled by Foxconn Technology Group with profits shared from selling power to the government utility, although no details of the expected revenues or split have been released. The initial total budget for the plant was 10 yuan per Watt (US$1.58), but has since dropped to about 9 yuan (US$1.43).

GCL-Poly already has a 20 MW solar plant in Datong and, in a separate development, its wholly-owned subsidiary Jiangsu Zhongneng Polysilicon Technology Development Co. announced a successful trial run of its first phase polysilicon silane system. Using the fluidised bed reactor (FBR) system, the polysilicon manufacturer produced qualified high purity silane gas.
