Mr. Filipe Nyusi, President of Mozambique to India. The Memorandum of Understanding will help in strengthening bilateral cooperation between the two countries. Background: The objective of this Memorandum of Understanding is to establish the basis for a cooperative institutional relationship to encourage and promote technical bilateral cooperation, investment promotion and partnership on new and renewable energy issues on the basis of mutual benefit, equality and reciprocity. The areas of cooperation will focus on development of new and renewable energy technologies in the field of conducting on-thejob and specialized training courses on renewable energy field, Research & development and of technology transfer in renewable energy, including Labs; Exchange of experience on different kinds of renewable energies, focusing on solar, wind, biomass, biofuels and geothermal; Establish a bilateral private sector renewable energy platform; Scientific visits and any other mutually agreed areas. RPS Endurance inverters with new parallel operation feature now available for the Indian market Bonfiglioli has announced that its RPS Endurance inverters are now ready to tango: With the introduction of the new tandem feature, up to 4 units operate seamlessly in parallel on a single medium-voltage transformer winding. This makes the performance and ease of handling of RPS Endurance inverters now fully available for megawatt-scale PV stations. Thanks to the further extended power range of single RPS Endurance units of up to 563 kWac at 50°C ambient temperature, the new features allows the effortless realization of 2 MW+ tandem configurations with a common ac connection, paired with the best-in-class 15 % permanent overload capacity (up to 648 kWac) at reduced ambient temperatures. The organization will utilize its Bengaluru (India) facility for manufacturing and supplying these inverters to South East Asia Market. According to Mr. Senthilkumar K, Head Technical, Bonfiglioli India, the innovative two-zone ambient protection system distinguishes the RPS Endurance from other solutions and makes it a preferred choice for harsh plant environment of India Projects.
