WorleyParsons China wins engineering design contract for major polysilicon manufacturer

WorleyParsons China, the country's largest international engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) provider, has been awarded a detailed engineering design contract with a major global polysilicon manufacturer.

The 10-month project will see the company lead the design of process units for high-purity E-grade polysilicon, which is widely used in the solar sector for the production of solar cells, integrated circuits and semi-conductors. High-purity polysilicon has a high photoelectric conversion rate and is one of the most effective clean energy sources available.

Chosen for its industry track-record, technical expertise and Intellectual Property Protection (IPP), WorleyParsons will optimise the customer's manufacturing process and reduce costs. More than 100 staff from five local offices will be required during the project's peak engineering stage.
Tom Liao, Executive Vice President - Lead for Business Group Chemicals & Petrochemicals at WorleyParsons China said: "This contract represents a significant step for WorleyParsons as we continue to build our expertise in the solar sector. Our industry track-record was a key factor in this award - cementing our position as a leading EPCM provider for the energy industry."

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
