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."

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
