The equipment will be installed in Powertec’s new polysilicon facility which is expected to begin production in 2012. The order will be included in GT Solar’s backlog for its current Q1 FY12, which ends on July 2, 2011.

“Our goal is to become a leading supplier of polysilicon to support the growth of the world PV 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. GT Solar’s polysilicon technology and complete range of engineering services will allow us to quickly ramp our plant to volume production while delivering the highest return on our investment.”

The SDR 400 CVD reactor has proven capability of producing over 400 metric tons annually (MTA) of polysilicon and continues GT Solar’s leadership position for developing the most energy efficient reactors in the industry.
