Punj Lloyd has commenced production from the polysilicon Plant in Qatar constructed by the company for its Client, Qatar Solar Technologies. This is the Qatar’s first polysilicon plant and the largest in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.
The contract for the 8,000 metric tonnes per annum (MTPA) manufacturing facility in Qatar was awarded to Punj Lloyd by Qatar Solar Technologies (QSTec) as part of QSTec’s plans to set up a plant for high-purity solar grade polysilicon. The site was in Ras Laffan Industrial City in the north east of Qatar, the heart of Qatar’s LNG (liquefied natural gas) refineries and exports. The activation of QSTec’s plant represents a major step forward for the MENA region’s solar industry.
