NanoGram Corporation Signs OTB as a Partner for SilFoil™ Solar Module Pilot Plant

MILPITAS, CA | Posted on August 29th, 2008

NanoGram will use the facility to scale-up their award-winning SilFoil™ technology for solar modules that will deliver the product performance and reliability of wafer-based crystalline silicon modules at prices competitive with thin film modules. Comprised of a set of proprietary processes, the SilFoil technology has as one of its cornerstones NanoGram's laser reactive deposition (LRDTM) process. The US Department of Energy recently recognized NanoGram's photovoltaic approach with an Energy Innovator Award.

OTB has a proven track record for helping Fortune 100 companies build lines in the solar, electronics and industrial arenas by providing production equipment and technologies that enable manufacturers to expand their businesses while realizing efficiencies and cost reductions. The announcement of this partnership is the culmination of months of collaboration to design and specify key portions of the NanoGram facility.

"By partnering with OTB we are integrating the expertise and proprietary technology of two companies working to speed the time-to-market of NanoGram's SilFoil technology," said Dr Kieran Drain, president and CEO of NanoGram Corporation. "OTB is helping us to deliver affordable, highly efficient, and reliable photovoltaic modules to the renewable energy market."

"NanoGram's technology can revolutionize the solar industry with a new generation of solar cells that increases efficiency and productivity and reduces costs," said Dr Paul Breddels, CEO of OTB Group. "OTB has the process engineering know how as well as proprietary inkjet printing and laser technologies to build the equipment that effectively produces this next generation solar cell with higher efficiency at lower costs. This partnership represents a great opportunity to take solar cell production to the next level."

The NanoGram solar pilot plant is expected to be commissioned in Q2 2009.
