Hindustan Powerprojects achieves COD of unit-I of its Anuppur thermal power plant

India’s leading integrated power player, Hindustan Powerprojects successfully achieved COD of unit-I (600 MW) of the first phase of its flagship 2520 MW Anuppur thermal power project in Madhya Pradesh. The company had signed PPA’s with Government of Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh for 35% and 361 MW respectively earlier and importantly, the coal for the project is secured through a fuel supply agreement with South Eastern Coalfields. The total capacity of the flagship thermal plant is 2520 MW to be developed in two phases of 1,200 MW (2 x 600 MW) 1,320 MW (2 x 660 MW). The first phase of the project has been commissioned at a total project cost of INR 8,000 crores.

Highlights of the project:

· Installs one of its kind Hydro bins, ESP technology and a disposal mechanism.

· Direct Connectivity of the Project to the National Grid to enhance reliability, economy and minimize system losses.

· Highly sophisticated thermal power plant construction and erection process through deployment of state of the art mechanized equipment.

Commenting on the commissioning, Ratul Puri, Chairman, Hindustan Powerprojects said: “The country needs to ramp up its energy generating capacity quickly to be able to meet the developmental agenda. We are committed to the vision of the Government and are focussing on adding capacity while not losing focus on the environment or social impact of the project. This project will play a key role in addressing power sufficiency in MP and UP.”

Raghav Trivedi, President Thermal, said, “The company has pursued an inclusive agenda by reaching out to communities and adhering to the strictest environmental norms. The benefits of investing about Rs 400 crore towards environment-friendly technology like ESP and planting over 81000 trees will be reaped by the communities during the lifetime of the project. We thank the local authorities, community leaders and the people in the surrounding communities for their support. The commissioning is an evidence of the success of the PPP model.”


Travel unlimited & 1 way outstation travel plan
First of its kind initiative in the Industry

Savaari, India’s largest car rental company with operations across 60 cities in the country has a launched first of its kind initiative where they offer “unlimited” & “one-way-outstation” travel plans at economical rates. In pursuit of breaking the stereotypes in the car rental industry, Savaari has chosen to break the norms of kilometer-based pricing for local travel and 2-way charging even for one-way-outstation trips.

The new offer provides unlimited kilometres packages for 8hrs/ 10 hrs/ 12hrs starting at Rs.1600 for local in-city usage in metro cities. On the outstation front, they provide one way outstation trip plans that break the barrier of the consumer paying for both way travel.

“In all such initiatives, our primary focus has always been to disrupt the existing market and provide customers with high quality services through extensive use of technology and innovation. Terminology like ‘point to point’, minimum kilometers per hour, hourly charges subject to an upper limit of kilometers etc have come into common usage because of previous practices. These are ambiguous and local service providers interpret them in their own way”, said Gaurav Aggarwal, Founder and CEO of Savaari Car Rentals.

“The market that Savaari is targeting is planned travel in the local and outstation space which is around 85% of the entire car rental market at a pan India level. This is a very different market space compared to the immediate need in the point-to-point space that is targeted by peer taxi services,” adds Gaurav Aggarwal.

Savaari clearly stands out among its peers with a network of 10000 plus cars and boasts of an experience of over 10 crore trip kms and 20 lakh trip hours to its credit.

Narrow Pixel Pitch LEDs Showing its Powerful Punch in the Global Videowall Market and is predicted to own 31% of Videowall Value by 2019

Futuresource Consulting has continued its decade long study and released the fifth edition of the global videowall report which explores the adoption rates of technologies in the tiled display market. This report continues to build on its heritage tracking the established technologies of rear projection cube (RPC) and super narrow bezel (SNB) but focuses more keenly on the narrow pixel pitch LED (NPP LED) category which is gaining real traction and moving in to be a serious contender in this space.

From a macro perspective the report found that the videowall market reached 536,000 units in 2014, 19% growth on 2013 (RPC & SNB). This growth was driven by SNB, which grew at 22%. Futuresource Consulting also found that NPP LED stood out, with a rapidly changing competitive landscape and increasing momentum in verticals such as retail, public display and broadcast. Activity in the control room space, an important value niche, has largely been limited to China where State/Government projects have given it a strong foothold.

The report certainly suggests that NPP LED technology is one to watch. By 2019 Futuresource Consulting has forecasted that NPP will account for 31% of total videowall value and 15% of volume (m²).

Chris Mcintyre-Brown, Associate Director Displays & Broadcast Equipment at Futuresource Consulting commented, “The early disruptive impact from NPP LED has been clear with the competitive landscape changing dramatically across 2014/15 as display vendors increasingly include the technology in their line-ups. The burning question has been to what extent it will impact existing tiled display options? NPP will certainly take market share from RPC and SNB, but there are plenty of opportunities to allow the technologies to co-exist together, typically dictated by specific performance advantages and vertical market demands.”

Rear Projection Cubes (RPC) remain remarkably resilient, with only 6.5% decline in sales during 2014. This is a niche but stable category, and is expected to remain this way for the foreseeable future.

The SNB category continues to be a major force in the industry, after its introduction in 2007. The category posted another very strong year, with 2014 closing on 499,000 units. This represents a CAGR of 16% since 2010. Critically, given the mounting competition from NPP LED, Futuresource expects to see healthy double digit volume growth out to 2017 with increasing demand from a broader range of verticals and more aware, educated channel.

From a regional point of view, the APAC region and in particular within the Chinese territory, drives volume across all three categories.

The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice Viewer for Android

LibreOffice, the best free office suite on the desktop, is available on Android as a native application for viewing ODF documents. The app can be installed from Google Play Store at http://tdf.io/androidviewer. Direct download of the APK and download from other app stores will be made available at http://www.libreoffice.org/download/android-viewer.

LibreOffice Viewer also offers basic editing capabilities, like modifying words in existing paragraphs and changing font styles such as bold and italics.

Editing is still an experimental feature which has to be enabled separately in the settings, and is not stable enough for mission critical tasks. It will be enhanced to a fully fledged editing solution in the future, with the help of our steadily growing developer community. The editing features provided in the current release have been developed thanks to donations to The Document Foundation.

Feedback and bug reports are very welcome, to help developers improve the quality of the application on its way to a fully-fledged editor. Users are invited to report problems, using the bug tracker and attaching files that have triggered the issue at https://bugs.documentfoundation.org.

LibreOffice Viewer is using the same engine as LibreOffice for Windows, OS X and Linux. This, combined with a new front-end based on Firefox for Android, reads documents similarly to LibreOffice on the desktop.

LibreOffice Viewer has been developed by Collabora and Igalia, backed by Smoose, with contributions from Google Summer of Code students, together with The Document Foundation and the LibreOffice community. SUSE has provided a key foundation of cross platform support, and Mozilla Corporation several core components.

PopChar X 7.1 offers extended support for emoji characters and an improved installer

Ergonis Software today released PopChar X 7.1, an improved version of the company’s award-winning tool for finding and inserting special characters and exploring fonts.

PopChar X 7.0 introduced the new shape finder, which lets you find special characters simply by drawing their shape. In the meanwhile, users and reviewers alike have already praised the shape finder as the best feature ever since the first release of PopChar nearly 30 years ago.

Version 7.1 offers extended support for the emoji characters, which are so popular today. When an emoji character is not available in the current font, it is now shown in the Apple Color Emoji font, which avoids empty cells in the PopChar table. Also, PopChar now shows the names of the Emoji skin tone characters.

The new version also highly improves the convenience of getting informed about and installing new versions. When a new version is available, you can now check the new features and enhancements before downloading the new version. The built-in installer has been adapted to new functions and appearance of Yosemite and helps with purchasing and updating licenses when the current license does not cover the new version.

PopChar X 7.1 finally adds many further improvements and enhancements that improve overall stability and compatibility with Yosemite and third-party applications like Filemaker. Visit www.ergonis.com to learn more about the changes in this release and to download a trial copy.

PopChar solves a problem faced by every technologist and multi-lingual worker. Inserting special characters into application documents can be frustrating and results in a steady loss of productivity. With PopChar, thousands of special characters are only a few clicks away. Just pop up the PopChar window, click the desired character, and the character appears in your current document right away. Starting with PopChar 7, you can even find special characters by simply drawing them.

Availability and Ordering:
PopChar X 7 requires Mac OS X 10.6 or newer and is fully compatible with OS X Yosemite (10.10).

PopChar X can be purchased securely on the Ergonis Software website www.ergonis.com. The upgrade to PopChar X 7.1 is free for anyone who owns a license for PopChar X 7 or purchased a license for PopChar X 6 on or after March 1st 2014. Upgrade paths are available for customers who purchased their license before that date. For information about purchases, including enterprise licenses, volume discounts, and upgrade pricing offers, see the company’s web site.

Instead of purchasing PopChar separately, customers can save money by ordering the Ergonis Productivity Bundle, which also includes the text expander Typinator and the keyboard shortcut helper KeyCue.
