Acquisition or Partnership

Emerson and Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Americas (MHPS) are joining forces again to develop digital technologies, software and services to help utility customers drive operational excellence in North America.  The companies will collaborate on digital solutions to optimize performance and reliability, enable predictive and AI-driven maintenance strategies, and automate operational decision-making.

The collaboration will build on the expertise of Emerson and MHPS to enhance the performance and reliability of power plants operating with MHPS gas or steam turbines.

Emerson’s Ovation automation technologies, software and solutions portfolio for power generation is highly regarded in the industry, controlling thousands of plants across the globe. Its embedded digital twin enables power plants to identify and implement new operating efficiencies, improve safety, decrease unscheduled maintenance and train workers.

As a global provider of power generation and energy storage solutions, MHPS is driving the development of next-generation power plants and digital solutions that deliver higher efficiencies to reduce carbon emissions and the highest levels of reliability to lower maintenance costs.  Its MHPS-TOMONI digital solutions platform provides real-time adaptive control and actionable knowledge to help optimize plant performance and significantly improve reliability.

The two companies will explore these and other advanced technologies: advanced sensing; thermal, process and equipment modeling and diagnostics; advanced control; analytics; pattern recognition; remote monitoring; digital twin; automated workflows; and AI-driven predictive maintenance.
