Amplus signs with Kongsberg Digital to digitalize solar asset lifecycle

Amplus Energy Solutions has signed an Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with  Kongsberg Digital to utilize efficiency enhancing applications available in KONGSBERG’s digital ecosystem, Kognifai.

According to the agreement, the Gurgaon-based Amplus will explore opportunities for applying Kognifai digital solutions and applications including renewables asset management to solar asset management.

Both the partners will offer these solutions for the Indian solar market.

“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”, said Mr. Guru Inder Mohan Singh, COO of Amplus Energy Solutions.

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. Amplus will get all data and functionality in one system, with significantly simplified reporting process as one of the benefits.

“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,” says Hege Skryseth, CEO of Kongsberg Digital.
