The panels can now be aligned in strings of up to 30 meters long, connected in series by TVP's proprietary panel-to-panel pre-insulated joints. This maintains the return heat transfer fluid piping within the panel's insulating high-vacuum envelope, minimizing field piping and increasing system performance.
On the rooftop of their new volume manufacturing plant in Avellino (Italy), TVP Solar has installed a solar field of the new MT-Power panels demonstrating the effectiveness of the embedded return pipe.
MT-Power with the embedded return flow technology is available for volume sales in October 2014.
TVP is exhibiting in Hall C4, Stand 450 at Intersolar Europe 2014.
