In his welcoming address, Mr. Du stated that the company prioritizes production and construction on equal footing and would firmly follow Chairman Liu Hanyuan's instructions of "constructing a high-quality project with high standards and tight regulations" to create a garden-style model for modern enterprises. When the Phase II project is completed, Yunnan Tongwei will become the world’s biggest single-unit production facility with a capacity to produce more than 250,000 tons of high-purity crystalline silicon.
On behalf of Tongwei, Mr. Li expressed his heartfelt thanks for the long-term care and support of committees of the CPC and governments at all levels in Yunnan Province. He also pointed out that Yunnan Province has committed to ecological priority and green development and fostered the conversion of resource advantages into development advantages in recent years, expanding the energy industry in scale and strength and boosting enterprises' confidence in future development. After the Phase I project of the Yunnan Tongwei 50,000-ton project landed in Baoshan, it took only 355 days from the start of construction to the commissioning of production. It yielded super-grade products in a single attempt, setting a new record for the fastest project construction in the industry. The Phase II project will adopt the "Eighth-generation Yongxiang Method", which is iteratively upgraded to create a high-quality project with "advanced technology, excellent equipment, reasonable cost, craftsmanship, safety, efficiency, and well-coordinated team".
