Gurgaon-based Amplus Energy Solutions has entered into an Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Norway’s Kongsberg Digital to utilize its efficiency enhancing applications – Kognifai.

As per the deal, Amplus will explore opportunities for applying Kognifai digital solutions and applications including renewables asset management to solar asset management.

Further, both the companies will offer these solutions for the Indian solar market.

Commenting on the deal, Amplus Energy Solutions, COO, Guru Inder Mohan Singh said, “Amplus has always been at the forefront of adopting performance enhancing technological solutions. Our customized remote monitoring system used to control operations of all our distributed solar projects has been developed in-house by us.”

“This partnership with Kongsberg Digital is another step in our endeavor to channelize the power of technology to maximize solar performance,” he added.

Moreover, the integrated solution will support automation of work processes, asset management solutions, solar power scheduling & forecasting, and use machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) for more efficient work processes.

It will get all data and functionality in one system, with significantly simplified reporting process as one of the benefits, Amplus, one of India’s largest rooftop solar power producers, said in a statement.

Speaking about the technology, Kongsberg Digital, CEO, Hege Skryseth said, “One of the many strengths of technology is that it is flexible and adaptable. That means technology created for one sector, in this case wind power, can be adjusted and utilized in adjacent industries, like solar power. We have a strong belief in the future importance of solar power and believe we have much to contribute in making this energy source even more viable for the world of tomorrow.”

Kongsberg Digital is a provider of next-generation software and digital solutions to customers within maritime, oil and gas, renewables and utilities.

Recently, Petroliam Nasional Berhad (Petronas), Malaysia’s fully integrated oil and gas major, has entered into an agreement with I Squared Capital, a leading global infrastructure investor, to acquire 100 per cent interest in Amplus Energy Solutions.

Meanwhile, the deal is expected to be completed by the end of the month, and it marks the Petronas international foray into renewable energy.
