SiC Processing AS yesterday had a fire in one of its two slurry plants at the Herøya industrial complex, and will take down the plant and a similar plant in Glomfjord to seek for the root cause of the fire.
The company supplies slurry for wafer sawing to REC Wafer and the plant in question supplies REC Wafer's two newest production plants, Herøya III and IV. A prolonged shut down may affect REC Wafer's production capabilities at some of REC's wafer lines.
SiC Processing is currently unable to estimate the expected length of the production shutdown. REC will revert with more information as soon as possible, and will investigate possible alternative sources in case of a prolonged interruption of the slurry supply.
