SHANGHAI (ICIS)--China’s Jiangsu Lugang Group plans to start production of solar wafers in Suizhou, central Hubei province, in December of this year, a source close to the company said on Wednesday.

The company will invest yuan (CNY) 800m ($122m) at the facility.

The source declined to give the capacity of the solar wafer factory.

The feedstock will be supplied from its own 3,000 tonne/year polysilicon plant, which was started up last year at a cost of CNY1.3bn, the source added.

The company is located in Jiangsu province, east China.
