We are a leading polysilicon manufacturer based in China and we aim to become a vertically integrated photovoltaic product manufacturer. With an installed annual polysilicon production capacity of 3,300 metric tonnes, or MT, as of June 30, 2010, we believe we are one of the largest polysilicon manufacturers in China. We have started expanding downstream into the wafer manufacturing business and are ramping up our module manufacturing business. We also intend to enter into the cell manufacturing business in the future.
We believe that we have a competitive cost structure in polysilicon manufacturing primarily due to our strategic location in China and our manufacturing process. As our operations are based in Chongqing, which is in the western area of China where the cost of doing business is generally lower than in the coastal areas in China, we have significant advantages in electricity, raw material and labor costs over our competitors that are based in developed countries or in the coastal areas of China. In addition, we utilize the chemical vapor deposition process, or the “modified Siemens process,” to produce polysilicon, as do the vast majority of polysilicon manufacturers in the world. We have fully implemented the closed loop system to produce high-quality polysilicon cost-effectively. Our fully implemented closed loop system differentiates us from manufacturers that only implement the closed loop system in some, but not all, of their manufacturing lines, and from manufacturers that are in the process of converting their open loop system to the closed loop system. Compared to the open loop system that most of our China-based competitors use, our closed loop system uses raw materials more efficiently, requires less electricity and causes less pollution even though manufacturing facilities based on the open loop system can be built within a shorter period of time with less initial capital expenditures on equipment.
