An example of further consolidation in the process automation industry, Emerson has announced it has completed the purchase of MYNAH Technologies, a long-time Emerson alliance partner and a leading provider of dynamic simulation and operator training software.
This acquisiton follows Rockwell Automation’s acquisition of Maverick Technologies furthering consolidation in the process automation space as the larger companies seek to add more customer value in house.
MYNAH’s solutions enable plant engineers and technicians to test and improve process control strategies and train plant operators in offline, real-world scenarios before implementing them in live production. The addition of MYNAH will help support Emerson Automation Solutions and its Operational Certainty program designed to help industrial companies achieve top performance.
“Adding MYNAH’s simulation software and expertise allows us to provide customers with more advanced process simulation and training solutions. This will help improve plant performance, safety and profitability by allowing them to fully optimize their human and automation resources,” said Jamie Froedge, president, Process Systems and Solutions, Emerson Automation Solutions.
MYNAH’s Mimic Simulation Software is currently in use at more than 1,400 sites across 68 countries in industries ranging from hydrocarbon production, refining, chemical, pharmaceutical and biotechnology. The company’s portfolio also has integration solutions that connect Emerson’s DeltaV distributed control system and its production improvement capabilities with additional plant systems, helping Emerson meet customer demands for more integration and related plant performance improvements.
“We are excited to join Emerson in delivering greater operational value to the process industries” said Martin Berutti, chief operating officer for MYNAH Technologies. “By leveraging Emerson’s vast global network we can help more organizations deal with generational shift changes in the workplace, while improving the performance of industrial plants.”
