Emerson sent me a number of renewable energy technology news releases and a live discussion over the past couple of months. I wrote about hydrogen a couple of months ago. These news items talk about wind power technology.
[This is also a good time to promote a new book, The Carbon Almanac, ideal for everyone to learn about what they can do to reduce carbon generation.]
Support China’s Carbon Reduction Goals
Emerson, a global technology and software company, will provide integrated wind automation solutions and services to Taiyuan Heavy Industry Co., Ltd. for three greenfield wind farms located in Shanxi Province, China, a region experiencing high growth in its renewable generation base. Emerson’s wind turbine control software and expertise combined with TYHI wind turbines will deliver green energy to over 35 million residents located in Beijing and other Northern China cities.
The technology includes Emerson’s wind turbine controls and SCADA software.
The wind farms are scheduled for commercial operation in 2023.
Emerson Acquires Mita-Teknik
Emerson announced it has acquired Mita-Teknik in an all-cash transaction. Founded in 1969, Mita-Teknik is a leader in the control automation business for wind power generation, equipping wind turbines and wind farms with technologies for performance and reliability. This acquisition is complementary to Emerson’s existing control system portfolio and supports the company’s ability to help customers in their quest to digitally transform operations and meet sustainability goals.
