Intersolar 2014 - GT Advanced Technologies to Present Its Merlin(TM) Cell Metallization and Interconnect Technology at Intersolar North America

Intersolar North America Conference July 8, 2014 in San Francisco, California

MERRIMACK, N.H., July 7, 2014 -- GT Advanced Technologies (Nasdaq:GTAT) is presenting at the 2014 Intersolar North America conference being held in San Francisco, California, July 8-10, 2014. On Tuesday, July 8, at 9:00 am, Dr. Gopal Prabhu, Sr. Director of Technology will deliver a presentation about GT's recently announced Merlin™ technology entitled, Innovative Cell Metallization and Interconnect Technology for Improved Module Performance and Lower Installed System Cost.


Merlin is a revolutionary interconnect technology that enables efficiency and cost reductions across the entire solar value chain. Unlike other interconnect technologies, Merlin is designed to dramatically increase durability of the modules when subjected to extensive thermal cycling and vibration testing. Additionally, it is a simple drop-in technology that minimizes the risk of adoption by avoiding the use of new materials in the construction of the module while keeping additional cap-ex to a minimum. While Merlin™ has been successfully developed and tested primarily for implementation in standard multi and mono crystalline silicon solar cells, it is uniquely suited for high current modules incorporating bifacial cells as well.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
