Research Project Summary Information



Integrated Customer-Product-Manufacturing Commercialization Program (ST8860-1)

Atlantis Energy System Inc.

Background

Atlantis Energy Systems produces built-in PV products such as PV roof panels and facade panels. It is also developing a range of products that will integrate into building envelopes. During Stage One, Atlantis signed a four-year lease for a 16,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility in Poughkeepsie. In this facility, it installed over $630,000 of production equipment, including the world’s largest laminator. By the end of 2004, Atlantis expects to have produced 300 - 500 kW of panels in its new facility.

Project Description

This project will install a stringer, glass washer, and crane extension that will accelerate production rates, reduce costs, and improve quality. The goal is to develop manufacturing process capabilities that will produce 1 - 3 MW of building-integrated PV modules annually. The project will also explore incorporating higher-efficiency solar cells into the product. In addition, Atlantis will develop new partnerships to penetrate the skylight market.

Benefits

During Stage One, Atlantis hired seven production employees and three professional staff. In 2005, Atlantis expects to significantly increase hiring and production, and will hire 40 new employees in the New York factory over a two-year period. In addition, Atlantis has a goal to source key components such as glass, wire, and cable assemblies within New York State.

Project Results

Atlantis established a manufacturing facility in Poughkeepsie, NY.
