GT Advanced Technologies to Present Merlin(TM) Interconnect System at Intersolar India in Collaboration With Waaree Energies Limited India

MERRIMACK, N.H., Nov. 17, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GT Advanced Technologies (OTC Pink:GTATQ) today announced that it will present its innovative Merlin™ solar module interconnect technology at the Intersolar India show in collaboration with Waaree Energies Limited India. The company will be exhibiting a variety of Merlin-based advanced technology modules at Waaree's booth in Hall 6, Stall C02 from November 18 to November 20, 2014.

In addition, Venkatesan Murali, senior vice president and general manager, GT's Advanced Solar Systems, will deliver a presentation at 11:00am on Thursday, November 20 where he will outline the unique Merlin value proposition for new module form factors. Merlin enables a variety of module designs that are otherwise not achievable with standard module architectures. This includes frameless, lightweight modules, which are especially beneficial in India's solar market given sensitivity to weight in rooftop installations.

"We are very pleased to be exhibiting with Waaree, a leading solar panel and module manufacturer in India," said Murali. "Merlin technology delivers lower costs and improved field reliability over standard module architectures. We believe there is significant potential in continuing to work with Waaree to leverage our innovative Merlin technology to manufacture solar panels with form-factors that uniquely address the Indian market's diverse needs."
