Wacker Plans to Set Up New Polysilicon Production Facility in the US
Cleveland TN, — Wacker Chemie AG has mid-term plans to construct a new hyperpure polycrystalline silicon (for making solar cells) facility in the U.S. and has purchased land in the State of Tennessee for this purpose.
The Munich-based chemical group announced the decision today. The land in Bradley County covers approximately 550 acres (220 hectares), offering adequate space for a new integrated silicon-based manufacturing site. The purchase price totals almost $20 million. The company expects a mid-term investment in the Cleveland, Tennessee area of around $1 billion to set up the new plant, thereby creating about 500 new jobs. The size of the site, the availability of reliable power from the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), over-the-fence supply of chlorine from the adjacent OLIN Corporation facility and excellent transportation infrastructure made this an attractive site location.
