Xianglu Tungsten forays into PV ultra-fine tungsten wire field: Tungsten products company Xianglu Tungsten said that it plans to raise about RMB 766 million ($113.7 million) through non-public offering of stocks. The funds will be used for technical renovation, and to research and develop ultra-fine tungsten wire for photovoltaics. The ultra-fine tungsten wire for photovoltaics that the company will develop will use tungsten powder, which is the company’s existing product. In this manner, the company will be making its entry into the photovoltaic field. The entire project – from research to development – is expected to take 18 months.

JYT moves funds as it discontinues one crystallization production project: In an announcement, Chinese solar wafer and equipment maker JYT Corporation said that it has still not obtained the relevant procedures for the evaluation of its Wuhai 10 GW high-efficiency monocrystalline silicon rod project. For this reason the company has still not been able to begin the construction of the project. In such a scenario, the company said that it would now use the raised funds, which is to the tune of RMB 2 billion ($0.30 billion), instead, on the Leshan 22 GW high-efficiency monocrystalline silicon rod and wafer project. This new project will be put into production by December 2023.
