SKC Solmics exits mono-wafer production with equipment sold to Wongjin Energy

SKC Solmics sold the equipment set for close to US$30 million. Korea-based monocrystalline wafer producer SKC Solmics, a subsidiary of Korea’s third largest chaebol has exited the solar sector with the sale of its production equipment to rival Wongjin Energy. SKC Solmics had primarily supplied high-quality monocrystalline wafers to a small number of Japan and US headquartered firms but was loss making amid a highly competitive sector and much smaller than key global market leaders. Wongjin Energy said in a financial filing that it had purchased the production equipment, expected to be primarily single crystal pullers and wire saw tools. SKC Solmics sold the equipment set for close to US$30 million. Tags: c-si manufacturing , monocrystalline wafer
